HC Deb 05 August 1887 vol 318 cc1363-4
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 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.
