§ Mr. Foulkes
asked the Secretary of State for Transport if, pursuant to his reply of 5 March to the hon. Member for Carrick, Cumnock and Doon Valley, he will give details of compensation paid to the owners of the ships and relatives of men missing in each case.
§ Mr. David Mitchell
No details are available to my Department since it does not pay compensation in such cases and there is no requirement for it to do so.
