Except in a limited number of cases where men are accommodated with their families in official 749 quarters at their station, marriage allowance in respect of naval ratings and other ranks R.M. is not paid to the man but to the wife, or in the case of motherless children to the guardian, through the Post Office, as is the practice in the other Services. The question of revision of the practice does not, therefore, arise.
I will certainly have a look especially at the case my hon. Friend raises, but I know of no general exception, except this, where men have quarters and their wives are with them.
