§ Commander Bower
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether he is 194W aware that numbers of men, physically unfit for service at sea, are being drafted to His Majesty's auxiliary vessels, where their inability to carry out the arduous work in these lightly-manned ships throws a heavy burden on their comrades; and whether he will, in future, consider drafting such men to shore establishments or big ships only?
No, Sir. It is not the practice to draft men physically unfit or sea to seagoing ships, big or small. The second part of the Question does not, therefore, arise.
