§ 71. Sir P. Macdonald
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty whether he is aware that naval officers sent to Bermuda on temporary service 259W only receive 30s. a day towards their expenses, whereas the cheapest possible hotel at which they can stay in Bermuda costs 50s. a day; and whether arrangements will be made to reconsider the allowances given to officers in such circumstances.
In February last the subsistence allowance for naval officers sent to Bermuda on temporary service was raised to 50s. per day. These allowances are reviewed periodically in the light of prevailing costs.
