HC Deb 04 December 1906 vol 166 c755

I beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade, if he contemplates bringing in a Bill having for its object the regulation of certificates of competency of sea - going engineers; and, if so, would he state when such Bill will be brought forward.


The requirements as to the certificates to be held by engineers on British ships are contained in Section 92 of the Merchant Shipping Act, 1894. The Board of Trade do not see their way at present to introduce further legislation, but the matter will not be lost sight of.
