asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he will consider the advisability of arranging for examinations of candidates wishing to enter the Mercantile Marine to he held at Hull?
§ Mr. RUNCIMAN
The question whether it is desirable that additional examination centres should be opened has been very carefully considered and arrangements will be made for examinations to be held at Hull and at Leith, in addition to London, Liverpool, Newcastle, Cardiff, Glasgow and Belfast as at present. The date of the re-opening of these centres will be fixed so as to avoid any interference with the safety work of the Board of Trade Surveyors.
