§ Mr. DAY
asked the President of the Board of Trade the numbers of persons serving on all vessels over 100 tons gross, registered at ports in the United Kingdom, which were engaged in sea trading during the 12 months ended to the last convenient date; and whether he can state separately the number of persons who were of British nationality and the number of foreigners and Lascars?
§ Mr. W. GRAHAM
The reply given to the hon. Member for Tynemouth (Mr. West Russell) on 15th May, of which I am sending my hon. Friend a copy, contains the most recent available information of the kind desired.
