HC Deb 02 July 1919 vol 117 cc940-1
20. Mr. BRIANT

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty if leave can be given to the men serving on the gunboats and monitors stationed near Russia, as in many cases men have received only thirty-one days' leave during the whole period of their service of four or more years?


Reliefs of all men who have served during the War on foreign stations are being effected as rapidly as possible. With regard to North Russia all reliefs asked for have been sent. With regard to Black Sea, many hundreds of men from these regions are now actually in process of being relieved. If my hon. Friend will give me more definite particulars as to the ships and stations he refers to, further inquiry "will be made.
