HC Deb 05 April 1971 vol 815 c1W
2. Mr. Tinn

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what further amendments he proposes to the Merchant Shipping (Pilot Ladders) Rules, 1965.

Mr. Noble

A Statutory Instrument about bulwark steps and hand-hold stanchions is already in draft. Further amendments which implement the recommendations of a working group and which concern the dimensions and construction of ladders will be the subject of a separate Statutory Instrument as soon as consultation has been completed.
