The British Board of Trade's inquiry into the disaster was headed by Lord Mersey, and took place between 2 May and 3 July. Being run by the Board of Trade, who had previously approved the ship, it was seen by some [ like whom?] as having little interest in its own or White Star's conduct being found negligent. [210]

After the Troubles and Good Friday Agreement, the number of overseas tourists visiting Northern Ireland increased. [309] It was subsequently identified in the Northern Ireland Tourism Board's Strategic Framework for Action 2004–2007 that the significance of and interest in Titanic globally (partly due to the 1997 film Titanic) was not being fully exploited as a tourist attraction. [310] Thus, Titanic Belfast was spearheaded, along with some smaller projects, such as a Titanic memorial. [311]

He expressed deep disappointment about the decision before the voyage but was presumably greatly relieved afterwards.

Retrieval and burial of the dead Markers of Titanic victims, Fairview Cemetery, Halifax, Nova Scotia Titanic propulsion was supplied by three main engines—two reciprocating four- cylinder, triple-expansion steam engines and one centrally placed low-pressure Parsons turbine—each driving a propeller. The two reciprocating engines had a combined output of 30,000 horsepower (22,000 kW). The output of the steam turbine was 16,000 horsepower (12,000kW). [16] The White Star Line had used the same combination of engines on an earlier liner, Laurentic, where it had been a great success. [29] It provided a good combination of performance and speed; reciprocating engines by themselves were not powerful enough to propel an Olympic-class liner at the desired speeds, while turbines were sufficiently powerful but caused uncomfortable vibrations, a problem that affected the all-turbine Cunard liners Lusitania and Mauretania. [30] By combining reciprocating engines with a turbine, fuel usage could be reduced and motive power increased, while using the same amount of steam. [31]
