§ 6. Mr. MILDMAY
asked whether the prospective rise of pay in the Navy is to be extended to men employed in His Majesty's Coastguard service?
§ Mr. CHURCHILL
The proposed increase does not extend to the Coastguard, who are saved many expenses—such as house rent—and discomforts which fall on the active service.
§ Mr. MILDMAY
Will the right hon. Gentleman take into consideraion that the Coastguard men on active service rating at present receive the same rate of pay as the corresponding ranks in the naval service?
