HC Deb 20 February 1929 vol 225 c1106
22. Sir B. FALLE

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether he will consider granting the same scale of retired pay to lieutenant-commanders of the supplementary list as those granted to lieutenant-commanders who transferred from the Royal Naval Reserve to the active list in 1916, observing that the officers of the supplementary list are called upon to perform the same duties and that their daily rates of full pay are the same as other lieutenant-commanders, but that the messing allowance of supplementary officers of 2s. per day was abolished on the 1st April, 1919?

Lieut.-Colonel HEADLAM

The rates of retired pay and other emoluments of supplementary officers, in relation to those of other classes of officers, were fully considered in 1919 when the present rates of pay and allowances were fixed, and I regret that I cannot hold out any hope of their being revised.
