inquiry into the request made by Trinity House to amend the byelaws relating to classes of pilots in the London Pilotage District which would allow Cinque Ports pilots to pilot ships through the Black Deep, in view of the question this raises regarding the safety of navigation.

Mr. J. P. W. Mallalieu

No; applications to the Board of Trade for confirmation of byelaws are dealt with in accordance with the procedures laid down in Section 17 of the Pilotage Act, 1913. In this case notice of Trinity House's intention to apply to the Board for confirmation of the amending byelaws was published inLloyd's List and Shipping Gazette on 8th July, 1967, and provided for objections to be addressed to the Board within seven days. If objections are made and sustained the Board may reach their decision on the basis of the correspondence exchanged or may first call a meeting of interested parties to discuss the case.
