A GRIEVANCE OF BRITISH SHIPOWNERS. ) Mr C. McArthur revived a very old griev- ance when he pressed the Prime Minister to proceed with a motion standing in the name of the President of the Board of Trade, for the appointment of a Select Committee to inquire as to the application of British sta- tutory requirements to foreign ships trading to and from ports in the United Kingdom. The British shipowner is compelled to com- ply with a large number of regulations which have been enacted in the interests of merchant seamen, and, to a great extent, in the interest of the owner himself. That is a very proper thing, but compliance with these regulations involves expenditure of money, which makes the ownership of a merchant ship more costly than it would otherwise be. The owner has therefore good reason to complain when he finds that most of the enactments relating to merchant seamen do not apply to foreign vessels trad- ing to British ports. In that way our ship- ping is severely handicapped as against the foreigner, and it is much to be hoped that, before very long, the subject will receive at the hands of our legislature, the considera- tion which it has long demanded.
