HC Deb 02 June 1927 vol 207 c561W

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether any arrangements are being made, and, if so, what, to return to England time-expired engine-room artificers or others now serving on the China station?

Lieut.-Colonel HEADLAM

No special measures are necessary, since it is the general practice to send home any ratings who are nearing the end of their engagements and do not wish to remain on the station to complete the commission.
