§ Sir BERTRAM FALLE
(by Private Notice) asked the Secretary to the Admiralty whether the children's allowance is to be taken away from all or any officers of the Royal Navy on 31st December, 1919?
§ Dr. MACNAMARA
In accordance with the decision of the Government, children's allowance will be withdrawn from all officers on the 31st instant, but the possibility of reintroducing it in a modified form in respect of certain particular cases referred to in the Navy Debate of 10th December is under consideration.
§ Sir B. FALLE
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that this allowance is given to all Army officers and all men of the Navy, and can the withdrawal of this allowance in the case of the officers of the Navy be justified?
§ Sir C. KINLOCH-COOKE
Before the right hon. Gentleman answers, may I ask, as he has referred to the Debate on the Navy Estimates, whether the concession refers to naval schoolmasters?
