asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty whether the recent concession instituted as a permanent measure by Admiralty Fleet Order No. 555 of 1922, authorising the issue of a free railway pass to enable the nearest relative and one other to visit dockyard workmen injured on duty when they are employed at a distance from their own yards, will be extended to the relatives of men of the Royal Navy injured on duty?

Authority already exists under Admiralty Order No. 328/20 for the grant of free railway warrants to not more than two relatives for the purpose of visiting naval ratings who are dangerously ill in hospital, and this concession applies when the illness is due to injuries received on duty.
