§ SIR. DRUMMOND WOLFF
asked the Secretary to the Admiralty, Whether Her Majesty's Government have as yet come to any decision as to the claims of the executive First Class Petty Officers of the Navy?
§ MR. CAMPBELL - BANNERMAN
Sir, this Question has been for some time before the Admiralty, and the consideration which has been given to it has disclosed considerable difficulties, as to which the opinion of Naval officers is by no means unanimous. I hope, however, that we shall be able to come to a conclusion during this year.
