HC Deb 06 November 1958 vol 594 cc101-2W
Mr. Knox Cunningham

asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation if he will state the number of certificates of officers of the merchant service and fishing fleet, respectively, which have been cancelled or suspended by courts of formal investigation held under the Merchant Shipping Act, 1894, during the year 1957; and, in the cases of suspension, the period of such suspension.

Mr. Watkinson

During 1957 six officers holding certificates of competency as skipper or second hand of a fishing boat had their certificates suspended, two of them for twelve months and four for six months. No other certificates were suspended and none was cancelled.
