HC Deb 11 March 1925 vol 181 c1329
82. Lieut.-Colonel JAMES

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he will make inquiries and ascertain whether His Majesty's ships employed on Lake Victoria Nyanza carry a proper complement of officers and whether he will take steps to see that officers employed on these vessels are not kept on duty for abnormal hours except on special occasions?


Several additional appointments have been or are being made to keep pace with the rapid expansion of trade. I will consult the Acting Governor of Renya, but in the first place I shall be glad if my hon. and gallant Friend will give me any information he may have received regarding abnormal hours of: duty.

Lieut.-Colonel JAMES

Will the right hon. Gentleman call for a special report from the Director of Railways in that part of the world, as he will be able to give full information?


indicated assent.
