§ Sir A. Knox
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty whether any decision has yet been reached with regard to the granting of official recognition to the naval brigades at Slough and Hampstead?
§ Mr. Shakespeare
It has been decided to grant official recognition to these two associations. The regulations governing the grant of recognition are being drawn up and will shortly be issued. Recognition will carry with it a grant of public stores not exceeding £100 in value to each brigade, and in addition a per capita grant will be made of £1 per year within a limit of £100 for each brigade.
