§ Sir B. FALLE
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty whether, in view of the failure of repeated efforts made at the request of petty officers and men of the lower deck to ascertain the salary paid to the professor of publicity of the Navy, Army, and Air Force Institutes, he will accord them the rights of part-owners and obtain this information, observing that according to Form No. 1324, dated December, 1924, issued by the Navy, Army, and Air Force Institutes, the Services own their own canteen service?
As indicated in the reply given by my right hon. Friend- the Secretary of State for War on the 4th March, this is a detail of business administration which the board of management of the Navy, Army and Air Force Institutes decides. I understand that the objects of the publicity section of the Navy, Army and Air Force Institutes were explained to a meeting of the lower deck representatives at Portsmouth in March last, and that it is the intention to take similar action at the other ports in the near future.
