HC Deb 14 May 1928 vol 217 cc664-5
50. Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether any payment out of surplus prize funds has been made to the Royal Naval Division Benevolent Fund; if so, what amount has been paid to this fund; and, if no donation has been made, if he will consider making one, in view of the fact that the members of the Royal Naval Division drew no prize money, although many of them originally enlisted for sea service?


The answer to the first part of the question is in the negative. The question whether the Royal Naval Division Benevolent Fund is eligible for participation in any future distribution of the balance of the Naval Prize Fund will be considered; but, as at present advised, the Admiralty are inclined to think that the personnel dealt with by this benevolent fund is also covered by other larger funds.
