HC Deb 29 February 1876 vol 227 c1123

asked the President of the Board of Trade, If he has any objection to extend the Return granted to the honourable Member for Sheffield, on the 24th February, by including in it all vessels detained for alleged overloading, and specifying the cases where they were lightened, and in all cases, whether of unseaworthiness or overloading, stating the name of the surveyor at whose instance the vessel was detained?


There is no objection to the hon. Member moving for the addition to the Return; but there would be an objection to the surveyor's name being published, as no good, but only mischief to the public service could ensue from such publication.
