§ 20. Mr. CECIL WILSON
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether any grant, bonus or other payment is made to industrial schools or to any member of the staff of such schools for each boy who on discharge joins the Navy; and, if so, whether he can state what the amount of such payment is and the conditions applicable to its receipt?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the ADMIRALTY (Lieut.-Colonel Headlam)
No such payments are made to industrial schools or to any members of their staffs except that, if a Naval or Marine pensioner should be employed on the staff, he would be eligible to receive a recruiting gratuity of 5s. for each man or boy finally entered through his instrumentality in the Royal Navy in certain ratings or in the Royal Marines.
