§ MR. PULESTON (Devonport)
asked the Secretary to the Board of Trade, Whether, having regard to the unanimous Report of the Committee for Saving Life at Sea, the Government can introduce now a short Bill embodying the principal recommendations of said Report, or give facilities for the enactment of the Shipwreck Bill already introduced?
§ THE SECRETARY (Baron HENRY DE WORMS) (Liverpool, East Toxteth)
The Board of Trade have not yet received a copy of the Report of the Committee referred to by the hon. Member. AJ 1364 recommendations which they may make shall receive careful attention. I do not apprehend it will be practicable to undertake any legislation during the present Session; but on that point, and also with regard to facilities for the discussion of the Shipwreck Bill, I must refer the hon. Member to my right hon. Friend the Leader of the House.
