§ 13. Major Sir B. FALLE
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty on what grounds it has been decided that no provision for marriage allowance for officers of the Royal Navy shall be made in the forthcoming Naval Estimates?
§ Sir B. FALLE
Would not a statement that this is a just claim which will be dealt with when money matters allow, allay a considerable amount of discontent in the service?
§ Sir C. KINLOCH-COOKE
Is the hon. Gentleman aware, that before we separated last autumn, we had a Debate on this question in this House with the result that he himself said he proposed to give a temporary concession with regard to the marriage allowance for officers? Why has he abandoned that policy?
