§ MR. HARMOOD-BANNER (Liverpool, Everton)
To ask the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies 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 the Crown Colonies.
(Answered by Mr. Churchill.) As I informed the hon. Member yesterday, as soon as the Merchant Shipping Bill is passed the Secretary of State will communicate with the Colonial Governments on the question of applying some or all of its provisions in the Crown Colonies.
