16. Mr. B. LLOYD
asked the First. Lord of the Admiralty if his attention has been called to the fact that under the new Regulations for children's allowances of naval officers a lieutenant will receive £2 per month per child, subject to a maximum of £8 a month, but upon promotion to lieutenant-commander, although he would get no increase of pay except after eight years' service, the children's allowance would drop to £1 per month per child, with a maximum of £4 a month; and will he take steps to remove this grievance?
§ Dr. MACNAMARA
The officers referred to are temporary lieutenant-commanders of the R.N.R. and R..N.V.R., and, as they receive pay on the scale for lieutenants, they will be eligible for full children's allowances.
