HC Deb 15 June 1896 vol 41 cc1065-6
SIR GEORGE BADEN-POWELL (Liverpool, Kirkdale)

I beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade whether the Congress of the United States has passed, and the President approved, a Bill for reducing risk of collisions at sea, embodying new regulations for fog signals at sea; and, if so, whether these new regulations are those recommended by the Washington Maritime Conference, or those suggested by the British Board of Trade after consultation with the shipping interests; and, whether there remain any Foreign Powers which have not, as yet, given in their adhesion to the new regulations which have now been adopted by the United States?


I am not yet in possession of information as to the action of the United States Government.
