HC Deb 11 August 1919 vol 119 c865
22. Mr. CROOKS

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is aware of the large number of seamen whose experiences during the War have shattered their nerves and have rendered them incapable of further work; and whether any steps are being taken to come to the financial assistance of these men and their dependants?


Compensation has been granted under the war risks compensation scheme for the Mercantile Marine in a number of cases similar to those referred to in the question. If the right hon. Gentleman has any special case or cases in mind and will send me particulars, I will inquire into them.
