HC Deb 21 June 1951 vol 489 c68W
Mr. Bevins

asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware that seafarers because of the nature of their employment are deprived of certain benefits of the Health Service; and if he will take steps to remedy the position.

Mr. Marquand

Seafarers are in the same position as other British subjects needing treatment abroad. The National Health Service Acts apply only to this country.
