HC Deb 21 December 1888 vol 332 c970
MR. ROWNTREE (Scarborough)

asked the President of the Board of Trade, If it will be practicable to include in the certificate of service granted to men of the Royal Naval Reserve who have served their full time, an endorsement of character as reported from time to time by the Drill Instructors, and similar to that given to seamen leaving the Royal Navy, in order to assist men of good character in obtaining employment ashore when no longer able on account of age to follow their calling at sea?


I will at once direct communications to be made to the Lords Commissioners of the Admiralty on the subject, with a view to considering whether the suggestion made by the hon. Member can be carried into effect.
