§ 8. Mr. Howard Gritten
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he has any information in regard to the excessive profits made by British shipping 2656 companies trading with Government Spain; and whether seamen receive increased rates of pay, in view of the additional risks incurred?
§ Mr. Stanley
The answer to the first part of the question is in the negative, and to the second part in the affirmative. I am sending my hon. Friend the circulars issued by the National Maritime Board setting out the particulars of the bonus on wages of seamen on British ships visiting Spanish ports.
§ Mr. George Griffiths
Will the right hon. Gentleman also send the hon. Member the number of seamen who have been killed from Hartlepools?
§ Mr. Radford
Will my right hon. Friend have the information circulated in the OFFICIAL REPORT, so that it may be available to all hon. Members?
