Mr. C. WASON
asked the Secretary to the Admiralty if he is aware that after the 1st November fishing will be no longer a certificated occupation, and that in all probability many men in Shetland will be required to enrol in the Royal Naval Reserve; and, in view of the fact that there are many naval and civilian doctors in or near Lerwick, whether he will not require the men to undertake the voyage to Aberdeen and back for medical examination?
§ Dr. MACNAMARA
An intimation to this effect has been received from the Board of Agriculture and fisheries. The Shetland men will not be required to go to Aberdeen for medical examination, and arrangements are now under consideration for carrying out their enrolment locally.
