HC Deb 19 February 1894 vol 21 c728

I beg to ask the Civil Lord of the Admiralty whether he is aware that the additional Greenwich pensions granted by an Order in Council, 28th July, 1893, to chief gunners, chief carpenters, and chief boatswains respectively have not been yet allotted; and whether he can state the cause of the delay in so doing?


The Order in Council provided that the number of pensions allotted to Lieutenants should be reduced by two, and, from the money thus available, three additional pensions should be allotted to chief warrant officers., and as soon as funds are available by the lapse of two Lieutenants' pensions, the three additional pensions will be awarded to the chief warrant officers.
