§ MR. BELLAIRS (Lynn Regis)
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Admiralty on how many occasions since 1893 have proposals for lectures submitted by the Council of the Royal United Service Institution been vetoed by the Admiralty; and whether the lecturer in each case was an officer on full pay.
§ SECRETARY TO THE ADMIRALTY (Mr. EDMUND ROBERTSON,) Dundee
Since 1893 there have been two cases in which the Admiralty have refused, in the interest of the public service, to permit an officer to deliver a lecture at the Royal United Service Institution. In both cases the officer was on full pay.
