§ Mr. JOHNSTON
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he will reconsider his proposal to discontinue Dundee as an examination centre for certificates of competency in the Mercantile Marine; and whether he is aware of the financial handicaps this proposal will place in the way of candidates from Angus, Perthshire, and Fifeshire in respect of maintenance and travelling?
§ Mr. H. WILLIAMS
Representations have been received regarding the financial hardship to candidates from the counties mentioned if the examinations for masters1140W and mates held at Dundee are discontinued. These representations will be fully considered before a decision is made.
