HC Deb 22 October 1946 vol 427 c321W
4. Mr. Nield

asked the Secretary of State for War if he is satisfied that all reasonable steps are being taken to avoid overcrowding in leave ships to the United Kingdom; and whether any improvement in the position can be expected.

Mr. J. Freeman

My right hon. Friend is satisfied that the ships used for leave journeys are not filled beyond their approved passenger capacity. The hon. and learned Member will appreciate that we must still exercise the greatest economy in shipping.
