HC Deb 25 June 1868 vol 192 c2136

said, he wished to ask the Vice President of the Board of Trade, When the Papers having reference to the "Rule of Road at Sea," and laid upon the Table in December last (but the issue of which has been delayed in consequence of some important Correspondence with the French Government on the subject), will be placed in the hands of Members?


Sir, the reply of the French Government has been recently received, expressing entire concurrence in the memoranda and diagrams proposed by the Board of Trade in reference to the "Rule of the Road at Sea." The Papers are now in the printer's hands, and I hope may be ready for distribution by the end of next week.
