§ MR. WEIR
I beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade if care will be taken that the steamers plying along the coasts of the Western Highlands and the Islands of Scotland, which are largely used during the summer season, are inspected, with a view to ensure the satisfactory condition of the gear and boats.
§ THE PRESIDENT OF THE BOARD OF TRADE (Mr. LLOYD-GEORGE, Carnarvon Boroughs
): Yes, Sir. Every care is, and will be, taken to secure the satisfactory condition of the vessels to which my hon. friend refers, together with their gear and boats.
