HC Deb 03 March 1908 vol 185 c531

I beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade if any inquiry was held into the death from heart failure of a coal trimmer named Jobanalla Allimalla, on 11th June last, on the steamship "Clan Macneil"; what was the consumption of coal on this vessel for each twenty-four hours; how many men were actually employed on her as firemen and trimmers; and how much coal was each man required to work in the twenty-four hours.

[There were thirty-one other Questions of a like character on the Paper in the names of various hon. Members.]


I propose to circulate with the Votes such information as the Board of Trade possesses. I do not think it will interest the House to hear each Question answered separately.


May I ask the right hon. Gentleman whether, when he had the Merchant Shipping Bill in hand, he did not receive a petition from Asiatic seamen, expressing their dislike of cubic contents, and some suspicion of solicitude of this kind?

[No Answer was returned.]
