§ Mr. A. C. MORTON
asked whether a sailor when on leave gets 8½d. per day subsistence money; whether a soldier gets 1s. 0½d. per day subsistence money; and, if so, why does the British sailor get less than the soldier?
§ Mr. McKENNA
Seamen and marines receive a leave allowance of 8½d. a day. I understand that it is not the case that a soldier receives a subsistence allowance of 1s. 0½d. a day; he receives messing allowance of 3d. a day, and an allowance in lieu of rations, 6d. a day.
