HC Deb 25 March 1930 vol 237 c246

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is now in a position to state when the joint advisory committee set up by the Ministry of Health and the Board of Trade to consider matters affecting the health of the mercantile marine will make their report?

The PRESIDENT of the BOARD of TRADE (Mr. William Graham)

I would refer my hon. Friend to the answer given on this subject to the hon. and gallant Member for St. Albans (Lieut.-Colonel Fremantle) on the 24th December, 1929, of which I am sending him a copy.

Lieut.-Colonel FREMANTLE

Can the President of the Board of Trade say something more as to what is the real position, because that is a long time ago?


I was not asked that in the question, but, if the hon. and gallant Member will put down a question on that point, I will give him the information up to date.
