HC Deb 06 March 1918 vol 103 cc1947-8

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether his attention has been called to the fact that there are a number of B Class men of the Royal Fleet Reserve who have qualified by age and service for the £50 bonus, and have not been paid; and will he forthwith issue instructions for the payment of the bonus, or state his reasons for refusing to do so?


Payment of the £50 gratuity is being made to men who are qualified by age and service for the award in all cases in which applications have been received. Instructions to for ward applications were issued in December last. If my hon. and learned Friend knows of any case in which there has been undue delay after application has been made, I shall be glad to have the facts from him and have inquiry made.
