HC Deb 07 January 1913 vol 46 cc1008-9
76. Mr. PETO

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he can hold out any prospect of the Merchant Shipping (Certificates) Bill being brought to a successful conclusion during the present Parliamentary Session, and on what date he proposes to bring it forward for the further consideration of the House?

Mr. GULLAND (Lord of the Treasury)

I have been asked to answer this question as the right hon. Gentleman is detained upstairs, and the Parliamentary Secretary is not very well. I am anxious that the Certificates Bill should be proceeded with this Session, if possible, but I fear I am not in a position to name a day.
