§ MR. CURRAN (Durham, Jarrow)
I beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade whether he is aware that the life-saving facilities on the River Tyne are regarded as being inadequate in cases of emergency; and whether he will have steps taken to place the lifeboat service on a more satisfactory basis.
§ MR. KEARLEY
I am not aware that the life-saving facilities on the Tyne are regarded as inadequate. The question of the lifeboat service is one for the Royal National Lifeboat Institution, but if any representations are made to us, we shall be happy to communicate them.
