§ 88. Sir B. PETO
asked the President of the Board of Trade when the International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea will be brought before the House for approval; and whether the House will have an opportunity of expressing its opinion before the Government ratify this convention?
§ Mr. W. R. SMITH
As the hon. Member for Tynemouth (Mr. W Russell) was informed on the 10th December, the Convention will not be ratified or come into force until it has been approved by Parliament, and a Bill for the purpose of giving effect to the Convention will be introduced in due course.
