HC Deb 17 October 1994 vol 248 c172W
Mr. Steen

To ask the President of the Board of Trade which company owned the barge which was scuttled off Hall Sands in 1993; and what is its current status.

Mr. Norris

[holding answer 19 July 1994]: I have been asked to reply.

The Department understands that the barge had been acquired by Mr. G. A. Lawrence before it arrived off Hallsands and that the salvage of its remains has been undertaken on his behalf.
