§ 86. Sir J. Mellor
asked the Minister of Transport why no explanatory note accompanies the Load Line (Amendment) Rules, 1946 (S.R. & O., 1946, No. 1822).
§ Mr. Barnes
These rules make certain amendments of a minor and technical nature in the Load Line Rules, 1941, as they affect the construction of hatchway coamings and covers, cleats, wedges and discharge pipes and valves. They were agreed with the industry and the classification societies before being made and would be readily understood by all concerned with these technical rules without the need for any explanation of their effect.
