57. Mr. W. M. ADAMSON
asked the President of the Board of Trade to what extent the Amendment to the Merchant Shipping Act, which operated from July last, has been carried out in respect to the number of British ships being equipped with line-throwing appliances?
§ Mr. W. GRAHAM
I cannot state the number of ships carrying line-throwing appliances under the provisions of the Merchant Shipping (Line Throwing Appliance) Act, 1928, and the Statutory Rules made thereunder, but so far as the Board's surveyors are aware, the Rules are being complied with.
