HC Deb 19 May 1896 vol 40 c1689
MR. JOHN BAIRD (Glasgow, Central)

I beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade, whether he can state when the Report of the Inter-Departmental Committee on the Mercantile Marine Fund will be laid upon the Table?


said: My right hon. Friend cannot say when the Report of the Committee referred to by the hon. Member will be laid on the Table, but he understands that the evidence is completed and that the Committee will meet again shortly to consider their Report.
