§ VISCOUNT SIDMOUTH,
who had the following Notice on the Paper:—To ask the First Lord of the Admiralty, Whether any allowance from the Compassionate Fund for the children of warrant officers is to be granted; and, if so, whether the grant will he extended, as in the case of other officers, to all orphan children?said, he would not have asked the Question had he been aware that, to a certain extent, it had been already answered in "another place." He would now vary the Question, and ask whether the noble Earl could state when an answer would be given; and whether the claims of all or any of the children would be taken into consideration?
§ THE EARL OF NORTHBROOK,
in reply, said, that an allowance would be granted to all children of warrant officers who lost their lives in and by the Service, whether they were killed in action or not.
