HC Deb 14 April 1931 vol 251 cc3-4

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he can now give any further information concerning the setting up of a court of marine arbitration by the Soviet Republic to deal with disputes relating to the salvage of foreign ships; and if he can say whether that court has already been set up and will now function?

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

It appears from the text of the decree that the Arbitration Commission is designed for the settlement by arbitration of disputes concerning awards for salvage of, and assistance rendered at sea to, ships of all flags. The commission has been set up and is available for the settlement of disputes.
