Mr. Rostron Duckworth

asked the Minister of Labour whether the shipowners and seamen's organisations have worked out any scheme for post-war continuous employment?

Mr. Noel-Baker

I have been asked to reply. Yes, Sir. My Noble Friend the Minister of War Transport has for some time been in possession of the National Maritime Board outline plan for providing continuity of employment for the Merchant Navy after the war. This plan is now being considered in connection with the general Social Security Scheme which is now under examination by the Government.
