§ Sir C. KINLOCH - COOKE
asked whether the weekly pay now made to sailors in the Royal Navy includes medical treatment?
§ Dr. MACNAMARA
Medical treatment is free to sailors, except as laid down in the King's Regulations, which provide for stoppages from pay for hospital treatment under prescribed conditions.
§ Sir C. KINLOCH-COOKE
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that the Chancellor of the Exchequer, in the Bill before the House, proposes to charge the sailor for medical treatment, and if that is the case would he be prepared to see that the pay of the sailor is increased?
