§ 44. Sir J. D. REES
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he proposes to exempt seamen from penalties for failure to comply with rules made by the Board of Trade, as regards fire drills, under the Merchant Shipping (Convention) Bill?
The question whether, and under what conditions, a specific penalty should be provided for the cases referred to by the hon. Member is being considered, with a view to an Amendment being proposed on the Report stage of the Bill.
