§ 113. Mr. Prescott
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether he is now in a position to state if personnel of the Maritime Regiment are entitled to share in awards of prize money.
116. Dr. Jeger
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty how soon he expects to be able to make a statement on the amount of prize money to be distributed to the R.N. as a result of naval operations during the war; and whether he will give an assurance that the statement will enumerate the numbers of admirals, other officers, and ratings participating in these awards; the amounts to be received by each of these groups; and the number of those receiving prize money who were actually on the scene during the relevant operations.
In view of the complexity of this subject, I regret that some time must necessarily elapse before it will 339W be possible to make any further statement on prize money In the meantime, I have nothing to add to the reply given by my right hon. Friend to the hon. and gallant Member for Chelsea (Commander Noble) on 6th February.
