§ Mr. MACLEAN
asked the President of the Board of Trade under what Statute he is permitting ships to sail without the proper wireless staff?
§ Sir P. CUNLIFFE-LISTER
The Act requiring ships to be provided with wireless apparatus and operators is the Merchant Shipping (Wireless Telegraphy) Act, 1919. The attitude of the Board of Trade was described in the answer given to the hon. and gallant Member for Central Hull (Lieut.-Commander Ken-worthy) on 30th November.
