§ In reply to a Question from Sir LAWRENCE PALK,
LORD HENRY LENNOX
said, that the Admiralty had decided upon continuing the rank of Masters in the Navy; and with that view had commenced the re-entry of cadets of the second-class. The St. George had been apportioned for their training. The Admiralty had also had under their consideration a scheme for redressing some of the grievances complained of by the Staff Commanders and Masters of the Navy, and that scheme was nearly complete when the late changes were made; but he hoped it would not be long before they would be able to complete it.
