18. Lieut.-Colonel C. KERR

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty the numbers of sailors who complete their terms of service each year and become available for other employment?


The average number of sailors annually discharged on completion of engagement during the last five financial years has been 3,201; the number of sailors actually discharged during the last financial year was 3,296.

Lieut.-Colonel KERR

Will my Noble Friend consider a scheme for guaranteeing these men work after they leave the Service?


I am glad to say that a great proportion of these men do get employment,
