§ Colonel YATE
asked the Secretary to the Admiralty what provision has been made by the Admiralty to place officers of the Royal Naval Volunteer Reserve on demobilisation on the same footing as regards gratuity, etc., as officers of equivalent rank in military employ?
§ Major Sir H. HAVELOCK-ALLAN
asked the Secretary to the Admiralty why it is not proposed to pay to temporary naval officers a gratuity on demobilisation, as in the case of temporary officers of the other Service?
§ Dr. MACNAMARA
I can only repeat that we have been for some time past, and are now, in consultation with the Treasury upon this matter.
