Regulation respecting the Payment of Mates and Naval Instructors
An act passed in the last session of Parliament, cap. 3, in which it is
enacted “That from and after the 31 Dec. 1841, it shall be
lawful for every naval instructor and mate in the Royal Navy, under
such regulations, limitations, and restrictions as have now been or
may at any time or times hereafter be established by the
Commissioners for executing the office of Lord High Admiral of the
United Kingdom for the time being, to draw a bill of exchange, or a
set of bills, of the same tenor and date, upon the Accountant-General
of the Navy for the net personal pay which shall be due to him, at
such times and for such periods as the said Commissioners shall at
any time, or from time to time, appoint on that behalf.”
It is therefore directed:- That all mates and naval instructors shall
continue to draw for the sea-pay due to them up to the 31 Dec. 1841,
as heretofore. That to draw bills for their net sea pay every three
months, to end on the 31 March, 30 June, 30 September and 31
December, agreeably to a (specified) table of pay.
That any mate or naval instructor who shall have been on half-pay who was
not serving at the time of his appointment, may receive 3 months' pay
in advance on his joining his ship, provided he transmit, with an
application to the Accountant-General of the Navy, a certificate from
his commanding officer of the day he commenced sea-pay, when a bill
of exchange will be sent to him for signature and negotiation, or the
amount will be paid to his agent, if he request it.
That mates and naval instructors be allowed to draw for their net sea pay
from the date of entry, if they receive no advance, or from the
termination of the period for which advance may have been granted to
the end of the current quarter.
That mates shall continue, as heretofore to receive the residue of their
pay on ship's books : but that naval instructors shall, after the 31
December, 1841, be paid the residue of their full pay by a bill to be
made out in office, on their transmitting to the Accountant-General a
certificate of service, and a statement of their claims for tuition
for the whole period of their appointment.
Naval Instructors and Schoolmasters who receive the new rate of pay will no
longer be allowed the bounty of £30 a year ; but if a chaplain
act as a naval instructor he will be entitled to the bounty in
addition to his pay a chaplain.
N.B. Bills for tuition or bounty to be drawn separately.
