§ 3. Mr. HANNON
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he will take an early opportunity of introducing legislation with regard to bills of lading on the lines of the Report of the Imperial Shipping Committee approved by the Imperial Conference, with a view especially to a settlement of the differences between merchants and shipowners?
§ Mr. BALDWIN
I hope that it will be possible to introduce a Bill on this subject before the end of the present Session.
§ Mr. HANNON
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that negotiations have been going on for a considerable time over this matter, and will he do anything in his power to facilitate the introduction of this measure?
