§ MR. WATT (Glasgow, Camlachie)
I beg to ask the First Lord of the Admiralty whether the allowances made to Royal Naval Volunteer Corps already exceed the £1,000 proposed; and, if so, whether the Admiralty will deal liberally in the matter of any further claims not yet considered?
§ THE FIRST LORD OF THE ADMIRALTY (Lord GEORGE HAMILTON,) Middlesex, Ealing
No allowances have yet been granted to any corps of the Royal Naval Artillery Volunteers, as the Committee have as yet only considered the claims of three out of the twelve corps, which require to be visited. As soon as the final Report of the Committee is received the Amiralty will be in a position to consider the compensation to be granted, which I have already stated will be done in a spirit of liberality.
