Crews of Italian ships deserve better accommodation and amenities than those generally provided for them. The Author contrasts this state of affairs with conditions in the merchant fleets of other countries, in particular the USA, but considers that, because of antiquated legislation and insufficient study of the problem in Italy, it would be a waste of time to draw up a list of the improvements required in Italian ships. Instead, he presents some drawings of Australian and American cabin designs in the hope that they will encourage effective action on the part of the Italian authorities and organisations concerned. Initially, a study centre devoted to the problem might be required, together with arrangements for promoting, co-ordinating, and financing research. Order from: BSRA as No. 47,275.
