HC Deb 26 November 1906 vol 165 c1216

To ask the Secretary of State for India whether he has considered the provisions of the Merchant Shipping (No. 2) Bill with a view of applying its provisions for the safety of human life to all ships, both British, foreign, and colonial, sailing from ports in India.

(Answered by Mr. Secretary Morley.) I propose as soon as the Bill becomes law to consult the Government of India as to the Amendments which it may be desirable to make in the Indian law and regulations.
