Backdated Approval of Miscellaneous Pay & Allowances
And whereas by Her Order in Council, of 29th November, 1879, Her late Majesty was graciously pleased to authorise us to make changes in the salaries payable in respect of service in the Civil Departments of the Admiralty with the concurrence of the Lords Commissioners of Your Majesty's Treasury:

And whereas we have from time to time authorised certain payments to Officers and men upon receipt of such concurrence in the view that the services in respect of which these payments were approved fell within the category of those to be dealt with under the above quoted Order without a separate Order in Council being obtained:

And whereas we are now advised that the payments in question do not fall within this category but require the approval of a separate Order of Your Majesty in Council under section three of the Naval and Marine Pay and Pensions Act, 1865:

We beg leave humbly to recommend that Your Majesty may be graciously pleased, by Your Order in Council, to sanction these payments as set forth in the schedule attached hereto, with retrospective effect as necessary to the date of first payment, the concurrence of the Lords Commissioners of Your Majesty's Treasury having in each instance been previously obtained.
