RN Personnel sentenced to Military Corrective Training Establishment - Pay
At the Court at Buckingham Palace, the 12th day of May, 1948.

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 21st day of April, 1948 (N.2/N.L.2588/48) in the words following, viz.:-

Whereas by Section 3 of the Naval and Marine Pay and Pensions Act, 1865, it is enacted, inter 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 the system for the execution of sentences of detention in military detention barracks provides that men under sentence who are considered capable of rehabilitation as soldiers serve their sentences in a series of progressive stages in a Military Detention Barrack known as a Military Corrective Establishment; and that soldiers under sentence in Stage 3 of a Type B Military Corrective Establishment may be issued a special rate of pay:

And whereas Naval ratings and Royal Marines other ranks are from time to time sentenced to under-go periods of detention in such Military Corrective Establishments and we consider it desirable that they should be issued with the aforesaid special pay at the rates and under the same conditions as soldiers:

We beg leave to recommend that Your Majesty may be pleased by Your Order in Council to authorise the issue to a Naval Rating or Royal Marine who may be serving sentence in Stage 3 of a Type B Military Corrective Establishment of such special rate of pay .as may for the time being be authorised by the Royal Warrant for pay for soldiers undergoing sentence in Stage 3 of such Establishment, in part remission of the stoppage of pay applied during periods of detention:

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.
E. C. E. Leadbitter.
