HC Deb 21 April 1926 vol 194 cc1222-3W

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether lodging and subsistence allowances have yet been paid to all the established men transferred from Rosyth and Pembroke to the dockyards of Devonport, Portsmouth and Chatham; and, if not, what are the reasons for the delay?


Under the arrangements in force, no delay should occur in payment of the allowances mentioned unless the evidence which the men are required to furnish in support of their claims is not forthcoming. In cases in which such evidence is unavoidably delayed, but the claims are prima facie genuine, advances may be paid by the cashiers of the dockyards. I am not aware of any grounds for complaint as to delay in payment.
