HC Deb 18 February 1920 vol 125 c877
38. Sir B. FALLE

asked the Secretary to the Admiralty if he can make any statement as to the granting of children's allowances to any rank of officers, Royal Navy, and if he can state the policy of the Admiralty as to married quarters for officers or give any information thereon?


As regards the first part of my hon. and gallant Friend's question, I can only say that the grant of an allowance to certain ranks promoted from the lower deck is under consideration. As regards the second part of the question, it is not proposed to provide married quarters for Naval officers.

Viscount CURZON

Why has the allowance been withdrawn from Naval officers while it is continued in the Army?


I do not know that any difference exists. I do not think so, but I really do not know.
