HC Deb 25 April 1898 vol 56 c944

I beg to ask the First Lord of the Admiralty if he has yet been able to consult his colleagues on the questions of progressive pay for the lieutenants, quicker promotion of warrant officers to chief warrant officers, increase of pension to chief petty officers; and, if so, whether he can inform the House of the Admiralty decision on these matters?

THE FIRST LORD OF THE ADMIRALTY (Mr. G. J. GOSCHEN,) St. George's, Hanover Square

I am not prepared to make a statement to my noble Friend on the subject.
