§ MR. KNATCHBULL-HUGESSEN
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Admiralty whether all officers have been denied their usual leave after the past 1716 Naval Manœuvres, while it has been granted to the men; and, if so, what is the reason?
SIR U. KAY-SHUTTLEWORTH
The usual leave has been granted to officers who served in the Naval Manœuvres. Officers appointed to ships abroad have been allowed seven days' leave. Those who continue serving in ships at home will, in ordinary course, have the annual leave of six weeks, to which no addition will be made.
