§ 7. Mr. B. SMITH
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether, in order to give more exact information regarding death rates in the Mercantile Marine service, he is able to base his calculations of the death rates on the average number of seamen daily employed through the year for 1920, 1921 and 1922?
§ Sir P. CUNLIFFE-LISTER
No, Sir; I fear it would be impossible to ascertain the average number of seamen daily employed throughout the year.
