HC Deb 29 June 1909 vol 7 c361W

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether chaplains, other than the chaplains attached to the Plymouth Marine Division, are engaged as examiners in navigation; if so, are they remunerated for such work, and at what rate; whether such employment of chaplains is sanctioned by him and is proposed to be continued; and, if so, on what grounds?


There is one other such chaplain, and he is remunerated at £50 a year. The reply to the latter part of the question is in the affirmative, and the reason is, that these officers are naval instructors as well as chaplains, and have been selected by the Board as suitable officers for the duty.
