EQUAL PAY - HC Deb 03 May 1922 vol 153 c1307 Major Sir BERTRAM FALLE asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty if he is aware that before the War a Major of the Royal Marines ranked with a Lieutenant-Commander of the Royal Navy, and received similar pay, prize money, &c, but that some years later his status and pay were raised to that of commander, but that the prize money awarded is that of a Lieutenant-Commander only; and if he will inquire into this oversight and correct the same?
The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the ADMIRALTY (Mr. Amery) My hon. and gallant Friend would appear to have been misinformed. The ranks of Commander, R.N., and Major, R.M., are each allotted 30 shares in the distribution of N
aval prize money.
