HC Deb 17 February 1876 vol 227 cc403-4

asked the President of the Board of Trade, If the departmental Committee appointed last year to consider the Regulations in the Merchant Shipping Act, commonly styled the Rule of the Road at Sea, has reported; and, if so, if he will lay the Report upon the Table of the House?


Sir, the Committee appointed by the Admiralty, the Trinity House, and the Board of Trade to consider the regulations for preventing collisions at sea have reported. Their Report, recommending certain amendments in the regulations, has been approved by the three Departments, and the proposed amendments will at once be submitted to foreign Governments. I will lay upon the Table of the House Papers showing what the proposed amendments are.
