Employment of Seamen ratings as Tailors

1907 03 26
At the Court at Buckingham Palace, the 1st day of March, 1907.

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 25 February, 1907, in the words following, viz. :-

Whereas it is provided in article 1,453 of the Regulations for the government of Your Majesty's Naval Service that Royal Marines employed as tailors are to receive 2 pence a day in addition to their pay and other allowances

And whereas it may be desirable to employ Seamen ratings also as tailors.

We beg leave humbly to recommend that Your Majesty may be graciously pleased by Your Order in Council to authorize the payment of this allowance to any rating who may be employed as tailor.

The Lords Commissioners of Your Majesty's Treasury have signified their concurrence in these proposals.

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.
A. W. FitzRoy.
