Can the right hon. Gentleman say whether the retiring First Sea Lord has sacrificed his expectation of normal promotion to Admiral of the Fleet at an increased pension or, rather, half pay?
Coming back to the reference to the Chief Scientific Adviser, may I ask the right hon. Gentleman whether he is aware that the Government, both here and in another place, have been seeking to put a gloss on the individual attitudes of the Chiefs of Staff? Why, then, should not we know what is the attitude of the Chief Scientific Adviser?
On a point of order. Can I have your advice, Mr. Speaker? Is it proper for the right hon. Gentleman to seek to put words into the mouth of the First Sea Lord which he himself has not uttered?
Former MP for Chelsea
