HC Deb 22 July 1914 vol 65 c428

asked the President of the Board of Trade, whether, as regards the recent collision between the steam collier "St. Margaret" and the Manx excursionist steamer "King Orry," he can state whether the master and officers of the "St. Margaret" held Board of Trade certificates and how many officers she carried?


According to the agreement with the crew of the "St. Margaret" for the first half of this year the master, mate and engineer were all certificated. I have not the information showing whether any change has taken place since 30th June, but I will make inquiries, and inform the hon. and gallant Member of the result.
