§ 31. Mr. R. YOUNG
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether his attention has been called to the hardships endured by officers and men serving in His Majesty's destroyers during the recent spring manœuvres; and whether, in relation to such conditions of service, he will recommend the payment of hard-lying money to those in that Service?
The answer to both parts of the question is in the negative. The Regulations regarding hard-lying money are considered adequate under existing conditions, and payment cannot be authorised to destroyers during peace exercises.
