§ Sir JOHN BENN
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether, in the best interests of the service, he will consider the advisability of throwing open to all ratings the chance of securing good-conduct badges, and of making such badges carry Id. per day, whether the men are required to wear them or not?
§ Mr. McKENNA
The matter has received the careful consideration of the Board of Admiralty, but it is not regarded as advisable to make the change proposed.
