HC Deb 23 July 1900 vol 86 c857
MR. LAMBERT (Devon, South Molton)

I beg to ask the First Lord of the Admiralty whether the work of the transport officers at the ports of embarkation will be recognised in collection with any rewards that may be distributed for services during the past year.


I must deprecate Parliamentary questions with regard to rewards and distinctions. The responsibility rests decidedly with the Board of Admiralty, and the grace of conferring any distinction might easily be marred by any appearance of Parliamentary pressure.
