HC Deb 12 November 1902 vol 114 c744
MR. LUKE WHITE (Yorkshire, E. R, Buckrose)

To ask the Secretary to the Treasury whether an early reply will be given as to the grievances of Customs boatmen, as the result of the recent inquiry by the Board of Customs.

(Answered by Hr. Hayes Fisher.) The answer to the boatmen's representations was postponed because it was considered that the question might be affected by the result of an inquiry now in progress into the duties of the waterguard generally. This inquiry will probably be concluded in a few weeks.
