§ LORD CHARLES BERESFORD
I beg ask the First Lord of the Admiralty if he has consulted his colleagues on the questions of progressive pay for the lieutenants, quicker promotion for 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 SECRETARY TO THE ADMIRALTY (Mr. W. G. E. MACARTNEY,) Antrim, S.
My right hon. Friend has asked me to inform the hon. and gallant Member that he cannot make any further statement on this question at present.
