HC Deb 08 July 1941 vol 373 cc31-2
58. Mr. Graham White

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of War Transport whether he is satisfied that the accommodation for crews on merchant ships at present under construction is up to modern standards?

Colonel Llewellin

Yes, Sir. The accommodation for crews in ships under construction must in all cases comply fully with the standard required by the instructions as to the Survey of Masters and Crew Spaces, which were issued by the Board of Trade in 1937, and in most cases this standard is exceeded.
