In subsection (a) the words “including members of the Nurse Corps” are omitted as surplusage, and the definition of “naval personnel” in 5 U.S.C. 421g, which is applicable to this subsection, is executed.
In subsection (b) the words “in any case whether public quarters are available” are substituted for the words “where and when there are no public quarters”. The words “for persons in the Navy and Marine Corps, or serving therewith” are omitted, since these classes of personnel for whom the Secretary makes the determination of availability are the same as those who may be furnished quarters under subsection (a).
