HC Deb 06 March 1885 vol 295 c277

asked the President of the Board of Trade, What is the allowance made to light-keepers in England as good conduct pay, and if this allowance is of a fixed amount, or increases according to length of service; what allowance is made to light-keepers in England for fog signal duties, and if it is permanent or only during continuance of fog; what is the allowance to light-keepers in England in lieu of gardens where no land is attached to stations; what is the allowance to female assistants at single light stations on the English coast; what is the extent of the inequality existing in this service between England and Ireland in respect to those several allowances; why the inequality exists; and, whether it will be ended?


said, he had a very long answer to the Question; and, if the hon. Member would permit him, would send it to him in writing.
