§ GENERAL LAURIE (Pembroke and Haverfordwest)
I beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade whether the Departmental Committee on the North Atlantic winter load-line has yet been appointed; and, if so, when it will meet and who will form the Committee; whether, if not yet appointed, the composition of the Committee has yet been decided on; and what are the proposed terms of the reference to the Committee?
§ THE PRESIDENT OF THE BOARD OF TRADE
No definite conclusion has yet been arrived at in this matter. It is still under my careful consideration.
