§ Mr. Denville
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of War Transport why ships' surgeons do not receive any leave with pay although other officers of the Mercantile Marine do so; and will he arrange that the same terms and conditions as regards leave with pay are applied to ships' surgeons?
§ Colonel Llewellin
Although ships' surgeons were not covered by the recent National Maritime Board Agreements relating to leave, it was not intended that they should receive less leave than other officers, and if my hon. Friend will inform me of any case he has in mind I shall be pleased to inquire into it.
