Acting Rating - Confirmation
And whereas the Regulations for the government of Your Majesty's Naval Service provide that a man. holding an acting rating is to receive the lowest scale of pay of that rating, and further that, in certain oases, when an acting rating is confirmed, his confirmation in rating may be antedated, with the result that in some instances he then becomes entitled to payment of progressive pay in respect of a period during which he has actually served in an acting rating:

And whereas we consider it desirable to dispense with the necessity for antedating confirmation in rating:

We beg leave humbly to recommend that Your Majesty may be graciously pleased by Your Order in Council to direct that, subject to such exceptions as may from time to time be provided for by the Regulations of Your Majesty's Naval Service, payment of progressive pay may be made in respect of a period during which an acting rating has been held, provided that such payment shall not be made until the man has been confirmed in his rating, when payment of progressive pay shall be made as from the date of qualification.
