§ MR. BIRKBECK
asked the President of the Board of Trade, Whether he will lay upon the Table, and issue to Members with the promised Report, the evidence given at the inquiries, respecting the proposed new regulations for lights for fishing vessels, held at Great Yarmouth, Grimsby, Hull, Brixham, and Penzance?
§ VISCOUNT SANDON
Sir, no evidence was taken down on the spot by the Commission that made inquiry as to the proposed new regulations for lights for fishing vessels. I am informed by the Commissioners that the most important evidence they had was in the form of conversation with the fishermen and a personal inspection of the boats and the lights. It is not in my power, therefore, to meet the wishes of my hon. Friend, which otherwise I would have been glad to do.
