§ MR. BADEN-POWELL
asked the President of the Board of Trade, If he can give the House any information as to what has become of the Royal Commission on Merchant Shipping?
§ THE PRESIDENT (Mr. E. STANHOPE)
The natural curiosity of my hon. Friend has been largely shared by others among us. He is, no doubt, aware that the Government has no control over the proceedings of the Royal Commission on Merchant Shipping; but, from inquiries which I have made, I learn that the next meeting of the Commission is likely to take place on Friday next.
