§ 16. Dr. M'DONALD
asked the Secretary to the Admiralty whether he is aware that servants' allowances has been granted to officers serving on shore with the exception of engineer-overseers, and that this allowance has been granted to a few of these officers; and will this allowance now be granted to the rest of these engineer-overseers, seing that they are only serving on shore for the time and are liable at any time to have their appointments terminated?
§ Dr. MACNAMARA
I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply on this matter which I gave on 13th November last to my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for Portsmouth, North, a copy of which I am sending him.
