asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty whether any reduction of allowances and for pay of naval officers is to be made as from 1st July; and, if so, will he state the reductions and the reason for making them at the proposed date?

Owing to the very urgent need for economy, instructions have been issued for the table money of all Flag Officers and Commodores to be reduced to the pre-War rates as from the 1st July, 1922. These directions have been coupled with a notification to the effect that, in the circumstances, entertaining on the scale hitherto customary is not considered necessary or justifiable. No other reductions in the pay or allowances of naval officers from that date are contemplated.
