HC Deb 23 March 1949 vol 463 cc360-1
32. General Sir George Jeffreys

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty whether he will now consider the possibility of adopting the same arrangements made by the Air Ministry for officers of the rank of Wing-Commander and upwards, and will permit Naval officers of equivalent rank when proceeding abroad to obtain free passages for their children's nurses.

Mr. Dugdale

Naval officers holding certain shore appointments abroad have for some time been entitled to a passage for a children's nurse at Government expense. This arrangement has recently been under review and it is now proposed to substitute for it arrangements similar to those referred to by the hon. and gallant Member.

Mr. Scollan

Are the same facilities applied to the bricklayers?
