asked the Secretary to the Admiralty, Whether the Admiralty have considered the case of the Hired Men in Her Majesty's Dockyards, with a view to re-arranging the basis on which their "gratuities" on retirement are calculated, and extending the age at which retirement becomes compulsory?


, in reply, said, that a number of questions affecting the pay of the workmen employed in Her Majesty's Dockyards, including the hired men, had been for some time under consideration, but had not yet been finally decided.
