HC Deb 22 July 1941 vol 373 c817W
Mr. A. Edwards

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of War Transport whether, in view of the difficulties experienced by returned and repatriated British seamen and the delay in settling their affairs and claims, he will consider setting up an organisation to deal promptly with the claims of such merchant seamen, and to be responsible for their welfare on arrival in this country?

Colonel Llewellin

I am not aware of the difficulties and delays to which my hon. Friend refers, but if he will furnish particulars of the case or cases he has in mind I shall be glad to have them inquired into.
