HC Deb 05 August 1914 vol 65 cc2017-20

As amended (in the Standing Committee), considered.


The Amendments which I put down to Clauses 9, 10, 11, and 12 were for the purpose of calling the attention of the House to the autocratic powers which the Board of Trade have taken to themselves under this Bill in matters affecting shipping interests. But, having regard to the circumstances of the hour, I do not propose to move the Amendments.

  1. CLAUSE 12.—(Supplemental provisions for saving Life on Board Ship in Case of Accidents.) 407 words
  2. cc2018-20
  3. CLAUSE 15.—(Wireless Telegraphy Requirements.) 606 words
