HC Deb 24 October 1918 vol 110 cc948-9W

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether the special Regulation which adversely affects the payment of increments in connection with the permanently-established rates of pay of engineer commanders as compared with the payment of increments of pay to officers in other branches of the Navy has been waived for the period of hostilities; and whether he will consider the desirability of cancelling this Regulation permanently so that, under the permanently-established rates of pay, engineer-commanders will be paid according to their seniority in that rank in a similar manner to that obtaining in other branches?


The Regulation referred to has been waived for the period of hostilities, at the end of which the question of cancelling it permanently will be duly considered.
