HC Deb 27 June 1910 vol 18 c807W

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether he can see his way to remedying the present prospects of ships' stewards' assistants and ships' stewards' boys by making the following alterations in their pay and position: ship's steward's boy, Is. per diem; ship's steward's assistant (on being rated from ship's steward's boy or on entry as ship's steward's assistant), 2s. per diem; after serving four years as ship's steward's assistant, being rated assistant ship's steward with rank of petty officer, 3s. per diem; assistant ships' stewards being promoted to ships' stewards as vacancies arise?


The question of the position of the ship's steward branch in the matter of pay and advancement has recently been fully considered by the Admiralty. It is hoped that it may be found possible to introduce certain improvements.
