§ MR. CLOUGH (Portsmouth)
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Admiralty whether he will take the necessary steps to cause all allotment papers, authorising the payment of allotments of pay (under Article 1526, page 570, and Appendix 15, Table C, Parts I. and II., pages 807 and 809, of the Queen's Regulations) by Officers, Petty Officers, Seamen, Marines, and Boys serving on board any of Her Majesty's ships, at Home or Abroad, to be Made payable at any post office, as well as at any of the existing paving offices, and whether within two miles of an existing paying office, or not?
*THE SECRETARY TO THE ADMIRALTY (Sir U. KAY-SHUTTLEWORTH,) Lancashire, Clitheroe
If my hon. Friend will confer with me I shall be happy to consider whether the difficulties which stand in the way of the adoption of his suggestion can be overcome.
