§ Mr. Parker
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty under what Authority a number of retired naval officers were called out prior to the passing of the Reserve and Auxiliary Forces Act, 1939; whether they were informed on being called out of the power under which they were called, their rates of pay and outfit allowance, and whether such information will, in future, be furnished to officers on or before being called out under Section 1 (2) (b) of the said Act?
§ Mr. Shakespeare
No retired naval officers were called up before the passing of the Act though some were given a preliminary warning. The conditions of service of officers called up are contained in the Appendix to the Navy List, except the rate of outfit allowance, which is under revision.
