I beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade if he can state whether any, and, if so, which seaport towns besides Cardiff and Newport have adopted bye-laws regulating seamen's lodging-houses in their districts, under the powers of Section 214 of the Merchant Shipping Act, 1894; and, also, in what places an Order in Council, under sub-section 5 of the said section, is in force.


In addition to Cardiff and Newport, the following towns have adopted bye-laws for seamen's lodging-houses under the section referred to in the question:—Middlesbrough, South Shields, Liverpool, Tynemouth, and Barry and Cadoxton. Orders in Council under sub-section 5 are in force at Penarth, Barry and Cadoxton, Cardiff, and Newport.
