§ MR. CATHCART WASON (Orkney and Shetland)
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Admiralty whether, in view of the fact that an outfit allowance of £20 is granted to Volunteer land officers under certain specified conditions, and that the wear and tear of a naval officer's uniform is greater than that of a Volunteer land officer, the same assistance will be afforded to officers of the Naval Volunteers as to officers of the land Volunteers.
§ MR. PRETYMAN
Representations on the subject referred to by the hon. Member have been made, and it is now under consideration.
