HC Deb 11 May 1866 vol 183 c771

said, he wished to ask the President of the Board of Trade, Whether he intends to propose any change in the Tribunal prescribed by the Merchant Shipping Act for investigating the causes of the loss of Merchant Ships at sea, or in any other manner to provide increased security for the safety of passengers in passenger ships?


, in reply, said, the subject referred to by the right hon. Baronet was under consideration, and a measure dealing with the question was in course of preparation; it would also contain some other Amendments of the Merchant Shipping Act. In the present state of public business, however, he did not think it very probable that such a measure would pass during the present Session.
