Pay for Mates and Lieutenants

1921 03 18
And whereas Your Majesty was graciously pleased by Your Order in Council of 22 January, 1920, to approve, inter alia, of the following revised rates of pay for Mates and Lieutenants serving in the Royal Navy on the 1st May, 1919, to take effect from the 1st February, 1919, viz.:

 

Shilling a day

Mate

16

Lieutenant, an promotion

17

After 4 years

20

After 6 years

24

And whereas we are of opinion that these rates are inadequate for the Officers promoted to the rank of Mate prior to the 1st January, 1920, as most of these Officers were considerably over the normal age at the time of their promotion:

We beg leave humbly to recommend that Your Majesty may be graciously pleased, by Your Order in Council, to authorize us, at our discretion, to grant the following revised rates, with effect from the 1st January, 1920, to Mates, and to Lieutenants promoted from Mate, who were on the List on the 18th December, 1920, and who were promoted to the rank of Mate prior to the 1st January, 1920:

 

Shillings a day

Mate (acting or confirmed)

17

Lieutenant (from Mate)

20

Lieutenant (frown. Mate) after 4 years

22

Lieutenant (from. Mate) after 6 years

25

These rates to apply to Mates, and to Lieutenants promoted from Mate, of the General Service, Signal and Telegraphist branches

The scale of half-pay to remain as at present.

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