§ Lord CHARLES BERESFORD
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether he could see his way to grant re-engaging pay of 2d. a day to all ratings in the Royal Navy who took on after 12 years' service to complete time for pension?
§ Mr. McKENNA
The system of re-engagement pay referred to, which was formerly allowed to seaman class ratings, has been abolished for all men who entered the service after the 30th September, 1907, and it is not contemplated to reintroduce it.
