MR. ASHMEAD-BARTLETT (A LORD of the ADMIRALTY) (Sheffield, Ecclesall)

Under the present Administration the amount distributed in Greenwich Age Pensions has been in- creased from £71,256 to £78,650, an increase of over £7,000. The expenditure on special pensions has also been largely increased. Within the past year the income of Greenwich Hospital has been increased by £4,000 a-year by the re-investment of £580,000.
