HC Deb 06 May 1912 vol 38 cc40-1
Sir J. D. REES

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether the Inquiry into the loss of the "Titanic" will fully deal with the construction and position relatively to one another of the watertight compartments; and whether the investigation will be devoted to that question rather than the number of boats, of which in many cases little or no use can be made in case of shipwreck?


The hon. Gentleman will see that among the questions submitted by the Board of Trade to the Court for its finding, special attention is called to the construction of the "Titanic" as well as to the question of the provision of boats.
