HC Deb 27 May 1935 vol 302 cc763-4
33. Mr. DOBBIE

(forMr. NEIL MAC-LEAN) asked the Secretary of State for Scotland the registered crew, as required by the Board of Trade, of each of the fishery cruisers; and the number of crew actually employed?

Commander SOUTHBY (Lord of the Treasury)

I have been asked to reply. The fishery cruisers are not required to be registered under the Merchant Shipping Acts in respect of the numbers of the crews. The numbers employed are as follow:.

"Norna" 21
"Freya" 20
"Minna" 20
"Brenda" 18
"Vigilant" 15

These numbers are in excess of the numbers required by Board of Trade regulations for merchant ships of similar size.
