§ 61. Mr. RUPERT GWYNNE
asked whether, in view of the importance of having full and detailed information on the subject before considering the provisions of the Pilotage Bill, the President of the Board of Trade will reconsider his decision and grant a Return showing the amounts paid by French vessels entering ports in Great Britain and Ireland during the years 1900 to 1910, respectively, and the amounts paid by English vessels entering French ports during the same period?
For reasons already explained, namely, the difficulty and probably the impossibility of compiling such a return, I fear that I cannot modify my previous answer. Perhaps the hon. Member will confer with me.
There is great difficulty in obtaining information, and if the hon. Member will confer with me I will explain the matter.
