HC Deb 17 February 1898 vol 53 c891
MR. DILLON (Mayo, E.)

I beg to ask the First Lord of the Admiralty what steps have been taken to increase the number and improve the status of Roman Catholic chaplains in the Navy, in pursuance of the undertaking given by him two years ago in the House?


Our proposals as regards Roman Catholic Chaplains, as a whole, have only just received Treasury authority, and steps will be at once taken to communicate to those concerned the changes which have been found practicable. Full particulars will be sent to the hon. Gentleman. It would be difficult in an answer across the Table of the House to indicate all the changes.
