§ Mr. Ogden
Will my hon. Friend note that seamen have more patience than politicians in this matter? There is some concern among hon. Members of all parties about the progress of the report, although the petitioners are fully aware of the complex nature of the matter and the efficiency of the officers of his Department. Will the President of the Board of Trade consider after the Recess receiving an all-party deputation to discuss not only the pros and cons but the progress of the report through the Department?
