§ Sir R. Gower
asked the Minister of Pensions whether, in view of the greater liability to accident under present conditions, officers and men of the Navy who are directed to find their own accommodation, or Who are provided with service accommondation outside their ships or establishments, can be regarded as on duty when necessarily engaged on journeys between such accommodation and their places of duty?
§ Sir W. Womersley
It is not possible to lay down a hard and fast rule in regard to injuries sustained by officers and ratings outside their ships or establishments, but compensation would be payable under the Naval War Pensions Order-in-Council in respect of an injury sustained in the circumstances referred to by my hon. Friend if the accident were attributable to the conditions or special risks of naval service.
