§ SIR SAMUEL WILSON (Portsmouth)
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty, Whether he will grant to Naval Schoolmasters, on completion of their period of service, the same scale of pensions that other petty officers in Her Majesty's Navy now receive?
§ THE FIRST LORD OF THE ADMIRALTY (Lord GEORGE HAMILTON) (Middlesex, Ealing)
The rates of pension for naval schoolmasters were recently improved, though they were not actually assimilated in all respects to those in force for chief petty and petty officers. The Order in Council of the 3rd of August last removes the limit that was placed on schoolmasters' pensions, and extends to men of over 20 years' service the same rate for each year served as is awarded to chief and petty officers.
