Surgeons of Passenger Ships
The Board of Trade interpreting of its provisions appears to be that every foreign-going ship having on board one hundred or more persons, and every ship carrying more than fifty fifty passengers (sailing under the Passengers Acts) shall carry an officer, who shall be a duly qualified and duly registered medical practitioner. The law gives no power to an officer to summon either master or owner, nor does it even hint that a vessel can be stopped if she sail without an authorised surgeon, although her complement may number several hundred persons. A Parliamentary return moved from June last year showed that during the two previous years 244 "experienced" surgeons sailed from the Untied Kingdom whose names did not appear on the Medical Register, and that of this number fifteen were under twenty-one years of age, and could not have been qualified at all.
