Allowances for Charge of Engineer's Stores

Hard-Lying Money for Vessels not in Commission - and Scales

1909 04 13
And whereas we have had under consideration the Extra Pay and Store Allowances at present paid to Officers and men of Your Majesty's Navy and Royal Marines

And whereas we are of opinion that it is desirable to remove certain anomalies in the payment of Extra Pay which have arisen in consequence of the changed conditions of service in vessels of Your Majesty's Navy out of commission, to award and consolidate the existing scales of Extra Pay, and to give the designation of Hard-lying Money to Extra Pay when paid fur living under special conditions

And whereas we consider that the duties in connection with the charge of stores (combined in some instances with responsible duties in Repair Ships) are of sufficient importance to warrant the grant of special allowances in ships and establishments in which allowances are not payable under existing regulations
