§ Sir R. GOWER
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether he will consider the desirability of setting up a committee to formulate a scheme for providing sick leave with pay for industrial civil servants in Admiraltly employ on similar lines to leave thus provided for non-industrial civil servants?
The industrial employés of the Admiralty are in the same position as the many other Government industrial employés in that their sickness is catered for by insurance under the National Health Insurance Acts. In these circumstances, it is not considered that the hon. Member's proposal could usefully be pursued apart from the larger question with which it is obviously involved.
