HC Deb 11 July 1911 vol 28 c198

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether he can see his way to grant some extra pay and extra leave to the crews of tugs who went to Portsmouth from other dockyards to assist at the Naval Review, more especially in view of the fact that these men were employed on some days for a period of eighteen hours?


Extra pay has been, or is being, granted by the respective superintendents in accordance with the regulations. It is not usual to grant extra leave as well as extra pay in cases of this kind, and there is no intention to depart from the customary practice on the present occasion.
