asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether any increase has been sanctioned in the number of free railway warrants allowed each year to naval personnel proceeding on leave?

Mr. Alexander:

The number of free travelling warrants allowed each year to officers and men of the Royal Navy and Royal Marines going on leave has now been increased from two to a maximum of four for personnel serving afloat. Personnel serving on a T.124 Agreement are also included in this concession.

Will that grant be in any way retrospective?

Mr. Alexander:

Speaking from recollection, the leave year starts about 17th October in each year and will, of course, apply from October to October.
