§ Mr. HAVELOCK WILSON
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is aware that the steamer "Ibis," of over 1,000 gross tons and 250 feet in length, is only carrying two A.B.'s, a carpenter and boatswain; whether he is aware that this vessel frequently carries passengers, and is trading between London and Antwerp; and whether the Board of Trade will take any steps to see that the vessel carries a proper complement of deck hands?
I will cause inquiry to be made in this case and communicate the result to my hon. Friend.
