asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty whether he is aware of the dissatisfaction felt by the Bermuda Dockyard Agreement Men's Association with the revised rates of foreign service allowance which are regarded as inadequate and complicated; and whether, as the rates of pay compare unfavourably with those in operation outside the dockyard and the increase in the mess subscription results in a loss of 5s. per week for a single mail living in messes, he will cause an inquiry to be made into these grievances with a view to remedying them.
