§ MR. WARNER
I beg to ask the First Lord of the Admiralty if he can do anything to remedy the grievance that sub-lieutenants have in having to pay extra messing on promotion while they do not get lieutenant's pay until appointed to another ship?
§ THE FIRST LORD OF THE ADMIRALTY
In some cases which have come under notice the extra messing allowance of 30s. has been paid to these officers until the date of appointment to a ship as lieutenant. There may be instances in which this has not been done, and I am looking into the matter with the view of remedying any cause of grievance.
