Pay for Cruiser Service - Mr. J. J. Carson
At the Court at Buckingham Palace, the 25th day of May, 1933.

Present, The King's Most Excellent Majesty in Council.

Whereas there was this day read at the Board a Memorial from the Right Honourable the Lords Commissioners of the Admiralty, dated the 29th day of April, 1933 (C.W. 3580/33), in the words following, viz.:-

Whereas by Section 3 of the Naval and Marine Pay and Pensions Act, 1865, it is enacted, enter alia, that all pay, pensions, or other allowances in the nature thereof payable in respect of services in Your Majesty's Naval or Marine Force to a person being or having been an Officer, Seaman, or Marine therein, shall be paid in such manner and subject to such restrictions, conditions and provisions as are from time to time directed by Order in Council

And whereas Your Majesty was graciously pleased, by Your Order in Council bearing date the 6th day of February, 1922, to establish regulations governing the rates of pay and arrangements for promotion of Officers of the Permanent Cruiser Service:

And whereas Clause 2 of the Schedule to Your Majesty's aforesaid Order in Council provides that a Senior Mate shall not be eligible for promotion to Chief Officer until he has attained six years' seniority in the lower rank:

And whereas Mr. John James Carson, Senior Mate, 'Permanent' Cruiser Service, cannot attain six years' seniority in that rank before reaching the age for compulsory retirement, but we consider that he is nevertheless deserving of promotion, and we desire to promote him accordingly

We beg leave humbly to recommend that Your Majesty may be graciously pleased, .by Your Order in Council, to sanction the promotion of Mr. Carson to Chief Officer, Permanent Cruiser Service, with effect from the 13th day of April, 1933, notwithstanding that he has not completed the prescribed qualifying service as Senior Mate.

The Lords Commissioners of Your Majesty's Treasury have signified their concurrence in this proposal.

His Majesty, having taken the said Memorial into consideration, was pleased, 'by and with the advice of His Privy Council, to approve of what is therein proposed.

And the Right Honourable the Lords Commissioners of the Admiralty are to give the necessary directions herein accordingly.
M. P. A. Hankey.
