Captain COOTE

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether the pensions and allowances granted under the war risks compensation scheme for the mercantile marine have now been revised; when an announcement can be made of the alterations in accordance with the Prime Minister's statement on 22nd December, 1919; and by what method such compensation is now paid?


As I informed the hon. Member for the Victoria Division of Belfast (Mr. Donald) on February 19th, the War Risks Compensation Scheme for the mercantile marine has been revised. An announcement of the alterations was sent to the Press on February 7th. I am sending the hon. Member a print giving particulars of the scheme as revised.
