Examining Medical Officer - Recruits and Reserves
And whereas by an Order in Council of Her late Majesty bearing date the 12th day of November, 1900, sanction was given for the employment of retired Naval or Army Medical Officers to conduct the final medical examination of locally raised recruits at certain Recruiting Centres; the officers so appointed receiving a non-pensionable allowance of £100 a year, in addition to Retired Pay:

And whereas it has been found convenient that the Examining Medical Officer at Liverpool should also undertake the examination of men for enrolment and re-enrolment in the Reserves and other special medical duties in the Recruiting District:

We beg leave humbly to recommend that Your Majesty may be graciously pleased by Your Order in Council to sanction the following arrangements:

  1. The non-pensionable allowance of the Examining Medical Officer at Liverpool to be increased from £100 to £150 a year as from the 1st April, 1911:
  2. The allowances of Examining Medical Officers in other districts to be increased in similar circumstances at our discretion, subject to the concurrence of the Lords Commissioners of Your Majesty's Treasury, up to a maximum of £150 a year where the additional duties involved are considered to justify the payment of increased emoluments.

Establishment of the Inspector of Recruiting
And whereas by Order in Council, bearing date the 29th June, 1895, the Officer in Charge of the principal Recruiting Station in London was styled ‘Inspector of Marine Recruiting,' and granted a consolidated salary of eight hundred pounds per annum inclusive of all pay and allowances, except that attaching to the appointment of Aide-de-Camp to Your Majesty, if held by that officer:

And whereas the duties of this officer have been extended to include the supervision of recruiting generally, thus necessitating an alteration in his title:

We beg leave to recommend that Your Majesty may be graciously pleased, by Your Order in Council, to sanction this officer being styled in future ‘Inspector of Recruiting,' no change being made in the emoluments of the office.

And whereas Your Majesty was graciously pleased, by Your Order in Council of 13th August, 1920, to sanction the payment of salaries at the rate of £200 a year to Naval Medical Officers employed on Your Majesty's Naval Recruiting Staff other than at Belfast:

And whereas we are of opinion that these salaries should be increased:

We beg leave humbly to recommend that Your Majesty may be graciously pleased, by Your Order in Council, to sanction the following proposals:

  1. Retired Naval Medical Officers employed as Final Medical Examining Officers on the Naval Recruiting Staff other than at Belfast to receive salaries at the rate of £300 a year in addition to retired pay;
  2. The new rate to be subject to review in the event of any appreciable change taking place in the cost of living, and to be applicable only if the duty occupies the Officer for his whole time, or nearly so;
  3. The above provisions to have effect from the 10th day of August, 1926.
