HC Deb 23 July 1935 vol 304 c1640
13. Miss WARD

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether, for the purpose of obtaining assistance under the Government's tramp shipping scheme, the definition of operative applies to the National Maritime Board's decision to require three officers in the personnel of vessels over a specified tonnage?


Yes, Sir. The doubt as to this agreement has been cleared up and in future claimants for subsidy must satisfy the Tramp Shipping Subsidy Committee that they have complied with the agreement in respect of the voyages for which subsidy is claimed.
