HC Deb 18 July 1912 vol 41 cc553-4W

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether the Registrar-General of Shipping and Seamen has been appointed a member of the Derelicts Committee; whether, having regard to other calls upon his time, he will be able to serve with efficiency upon the Committee; and, if so, whether his services would be more usefully employed on the committee of management of the Seamen's National Insurance Society in place of Sir A. G. Chalmers, an ex-nautical expert of the Board of Trade, whose talents might be of more utility on the Derelicts Committee?


The answer to the first two parts of the question is in the affirmative, and to the third part in the negative.
