asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the. Admiralty if he is aware that sub-Lieutenant A. R. F. Purvis, Royal Navy, received an intimation on the 17th July that he had been placed on the retired list, to date 21st June, and that he thus not only loses 26 days' pay but was prevented for 26 days from seeking other means of livelihood; whether he is aware that this officer has not even received the pay due to him up to the date of his retirement nor any notice of either pension or gratuity; and whether he will give instructions that such treatment of officers who fought in the War should not be repeated?
