§ 37. Mr. O'GRADY
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he has received any representations from the Dock, 1754 Wharf, Riverside, and General Workers' Union against the proposal of the Government to commandeer some of the vessels of the Bristol City Line; and whether due consideration will be given to those representations before any action is taken?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the ADMIRALTY (Dr. Macnamara)
The answer to both parts of the question is in the affirmative, but no guarantee can be given of exemption from the ordinary liability to requisition for naval and military purposes which attaches to all British ships.
