HC Deb 03 April 1941 vol 370 c1168
68. Mr. Windsor

asked the Minister of Shipping the position in respect of pro vision of crews for merchant vessels; and whether it is intended to promote a scheme for keeping seamen on continuous articles?

Sir J. Edmondson

I have been asked to reply. The representatives of the owners, officers and men on the National Maritime Board are preparing a scheme for the provision of continuous employment during the war for the officers and men of the Merchant Navy, and for the building-up of a reserve to enable adequate leave to be given in the Merchant Navy.
