HC Deb 23 January 1930 vol 234 c340
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?


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.
