asked the Minister of Shipping how far decisions of the National Maritime Board will be subject to review by the Advisory Council of the Ministry of Shipping; and, in the event of a deadlock arising on any of the board's panels, will the Advisory Council be empowered to arbitrate on the under standing that its findings shall have effect?

I am confident that the presence of both shipowners and representatives of the employés associations will in itself promote good understanding, but it is not intended that the Advisory Council of the Ministry of Shipping shall review decisions of the National Maritime Board or that the council should arbitrate in the event of a deadlock arising on any of the board's panels.
