42. Sir BASIL, PETO
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether the Senate of the United States of America has yet agreed to the ratification of the International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea, 1929, or whether he is in a position to furnish any information as to when the United States of America are likely to ratify this Convention?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the BOARD of TRADE (Mr. Hore-Belisha)
The United States have not yet ratified the Convention, and I am not at present in a position to state when they will do so.
