§ 32. Viscount CURZON
asked the Prime Minister whether he is aware of the suffering inflicted upon officers of the Royal Navy and their families owing to no decision having so far been reached upon the question of the grant of an allowance in respect of marriage, such as is granted to officers and men of the other Services and to the lower deck, aggravated as it is in the ease of the naval officer by the conditions of his service; and whether he can at once take steps to secure a decision on this question at the earliest possible moment?
§ Viscount CURZON
Is the hon. Gentleman aware that the answer he has now given is one which will inevitably entail quite a number of naval officers having to run heavily into debt, and does he think that that is desirable in the interests of the Service?
