§ 127. Mr. Willis
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty if he will make a statement concerning the payment of war gratuities and postwar credits to time-serving ratings of the R.N.
I regret I am not at present able to make a statement on this matter, which is part of the general question affecting all three Services.
§ Sir J. Lucas
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether he will give an approximate date for the payment of war gratuities to continuous service officers and 208W men of the R.N.; or if they are likely to be paid this year.
I would refer the hon. Member to the reply given today to the hon. Member for North Edinburgh (Mr. Willis).
