The cash allowance now given to men discharged from the Royal Navy, to assist them in providing themselves with civilian clothes, is £2 15s. 10d., which is the same as that given to men discharged from the other fighting Services. Alternatively, he may be given a civilian suit, cap, collar and tie.
Does my right hon. Friend agree that such a sum is grossly inadequate, especially at the present time, and will he reconsider the position, with the object of making a substantial increase?
In view of the fact that the amount has been increased from 18s. 8d. to £2 15s. 10d., would it not be as well for another revision to take place, with a similar increase?
