HC Deb 12 July 1883 vol 281 c1209

asked the Civil Lord of the Admiralty, Whether it is proposed to take a Vote this Session in the Navy Estimates (Greenwich Hospital Vote) to give effect to the provisions of the Greenwich Hospital Bill, should it become an Act of Parliament; and, if he will inform the House what portion of the Greenwich Hospital funds will probably be appropriated annually to this purpose?


It is proposed to provide in the Greenwich Hospital Estimate, 1883–1884, for the expenditure contemplated by the Green wich Hospital Bill. For the pensions to widows and allowances to children of men who lose their lives in the Service the sum to be taken for 1883–1884 is £1,200. It is intended to provide for not exceeding 200 boys in orphan schools and similar institutions at an annual cost for each boy estimated at £20.
