HC Deb 04 March 1880 vol 251 c299

asked the President of the Board of Trade, If he can state when he will introduce the Bill promised in the early part of last Session relating to seamen?


Sir, I am very anxious to introduce the measure respecting merchant seamen which I had prepared last year, but was unable to introduce; and as soon as I see that the Business of the House gives me any hope of securing due consideration for the subject I shall bring it forward.
