HC Deb 19 November 1945 vol 416 c28
67. Sir B. Neven-Spence

asked the Minister of War Transport what documents a merchant seaman has to be in possession of at the time of his discharge.

Mr. Barnes

When the seaman ceases to be employed in the Merchant Navy, he is required to surrender his seaman's identity card and is provided with an authority which enables him to be reentered in the civilian register. He is also given a formal certificate of discharge from his liability under the Essential Work (Merchant Navy) Order, 1942.
