§ MR. H. E. KEARLEY (Devonport)
I beg to ask the Civil Lord of the Admiralty whether he is aware that marines on embarkation are still charged for 88 white clothing, notwithstanding the promise recently made that such practice should be discontinued?
*THE SECRETARY TO THE ADMIRALTY (Sir UGHTRED KAY-SHUTTLEWORTH, Lancashire, N.E., Clitheroe,)
Yes, Sir. Until a new Order in Council could be obtained the old system has necessarily gone on.
