§ Sir WILLIAM COLLINS
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether the Legislatures of Guernsey and Jersey have yet passed into law the Bills for assimilating the law in regard to merchant shipping in the Channel Islands to that of the United Kingdom, in reference to which conferences and negotiations have been proceeding for several years between representatives of the Board and the insular authorities?
§ The PRESIDENT of the BOARD of TRADE (Mr. Buxton)
There is still one important point as to which the Board of Trade are in communication with the Bailiff of Jersey, and which must be settled before the legislation to which my hon. Friend refers can be enacted. I hope this will be settled very shortly.
