HC Deb 15 November 1917 vol 99 c576
73. General CROFT

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Shipping Controller whether it is the intention of the Government to build standardised liners; and, if so, whether he will give an undertaking that no such policy will be pursued until the evidence is undoubted that standard tramp vessels have been a success?


The policy of the Government is to build standard vessels of several types. The types at present approved include a vessel of higher speed than the ordinary tramp.
