HC Deb 13 July 1955 vol 543 c180W
76. Mr. Nield

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty in what circumstances adopted sons of seafaring men are ineligible for admission to the Navy's Royal Hospital School, Holbrook; and whether he will take steps to make them eligible in all cases.

Mr. J. P. L. Thomas

I am advised that, under the law as it stands, adopted children are ineligible for the benefits of Greenwich Hospital. I am, however, considering the matter further.
