HC Deb 24 June 1965 vol 714 c249W
53. Mr. Hector Hughes

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he is aware that a Norwegian 60-foot ship named "Juny" was found about 11th June, 1965, drifting and empty in the North Sea by the Aberdeen fishing boat "Enterprize", and that such an empty drifting ship is a danger to other shipping; if he will state the details of the occurrence; and what is the position, amount and destination of any salvage concerned.

Mr. Mason

Yes. The Wick trawler "Enterprise" secured the "Juny" and handed it over to the Receiver of Wreck, Wick, on 11th June. The Receiver released the vessel to the owner on 19th June with the agreement of the salvor and of the owner, after the latter had deposited a bond in security with the Receiver. The amount of salvage is in dispute and the two parties are considering their positions.
