§ SIR D. CURRIE (Perthshire, W.)
I beg to ask the right hon. the President of the Board of Trade a question, of which I have given him private notice—namely, whether in view of the feeling and judgment evinced amongst shipowners, shipmasters, underwriters, pilots, and others connected with British Shipping, hostile to the application of the proposed Washington Regulations for fog-sound signals at sea, he will be pleased to appoint a Committee of Members of the House to receive and consider the arguments and evidence against these proposed Regulations which the Shipping interest desire to submit to the House of Commons.
§ *MR. T. GIBSON BOWLES (Lynn Regis)
Is the House to understand that the right hon. Gentleman has receded from his previously expressed determination to carry into effect the Regulations issued by the Board?
