HL Deb 18 May 1896 vol 40 c1540

THE EARL OF CAMPERDOWN moved the Second Reading of this Bill. He said that it merely enacted that every master who was in command of a British vessel, and who became aware of any derelict ship on the high seas, should notify the same to Lloyd's agent at the next place of call, or direct to Lloyd's. The Bill had been approved by the Board of Trade, and there was no objection to it.

Read 2a (according to Order), and committed to a Committee of the Whole House To-morrow.
