HC Deb 23 June 1977 vol 933 c559W
Rear-Admiral Morgan-Giles

asked the Secretary of State for Trade what is the position with regard to the payment of outstanding wages to members of the ship's company of the "Halcyon Isle" since the time of the Court Line crash.

Mr. Clinton Davis

I understand that the court in Singapore has now delivered its judgment, which, inter alia, recognises the crew members' rights. Solicitors instructed on behalf of crew members are, I gather, seeking early agreement of their costs with other parties interested in the fund and the claims can then be paid.
