HC Deb 07 July 1926 vol 197 c2060

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty, with reference to Admiralty Telegram No. 608, of 6th March, 1926, authorising reorganised allowances for Admiralty civilian staffs serving at Trincomali and Rangoon, whether, in view of the fact that the cost of living is equally as high at Bombay as at these places, he will consider assessing the allowances of the foreman of the laboratory and two storehousemen employed at the naval armament supply depot, Bombay, at an annual rate on similar lines to Trincomali and Rangoon?


The allowances for Admiralty civilian staffs appointed from home for service abroad are assessed with regard to the circumstances at each place. There is no evidence that the allowances paid at Bombay are inadequate.
