HC Deb 09 February 1932 vol 261 cc641-2
19. Sir W. DAVISON

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is aware that in many foreign ports British liners are forbidden to land passengers in the launches or boats carried on board, and are compelled at heavy expense to engage launches or tugs at the foreign ports in order to land their passengers; and whether representations will be made to the foreign governments in question that the same facilities in this respect should be granted to British ships in their ports as are granted to foreign ships in British ports?


My attention has not previously been drawn to this matter; if my hon. Friend will furnish me with particulars of the cases he has in mind, I will look into the position.
