§ Sir B. FALLE
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty the number of boy ratings of all branches of the Royal Navy who were invalided during the financial year, 1st April, 1929, to 31st March, 1930; and the number in the same period who were invalided with tuberculosis and heart complaints?
I regret that the figures for the financial year are not readily available. During the calendar year 1929 the number of boys invalided was 88. The number of boys invalided in the same period with tuberculosis was three and with heart complaints, 19.
