The position of Fourth Sea Lord, until 1904 the Junior Sea Lord or Junior Naval Lord, was a member of the Board of Admiralty and the naval officer responsible for supply in the Royal Navy.

History

Under the provisions of the Order in Council of 14 January, 1869, the Junior Naval Lord was assigned to assist the First Naval Lord and responsible to the First Lord of the Admiralty for "the administration of so much of the business as relates to the "Personnel" of the Navy, and for the movement and condition of Your Majesty's Fleet." Under the Order in Council of 19 March, 1872, which succeeded it he, along with the First Naval Lord and Second Naval Lord, was "to be responsible to the First Lord of the Admiralty for the administration of so much of the business relating to the Personnel of the Navy, and to the movement and condition of Your Majesty's Fleet, as shall be assigned to them or each of them, from time to time, by the First Lord."

In 1904 the title was officially altered to Fourth Sea Lord, and, along with the First and Second Sea Lords, was "responsible to the First Lord of the Admiralty for the administration of so much of the general business connected with Your Majesty's Navy, and with the movement and condition of Your Majesty's Fleet and with the "Personnel" of that Fleet, as shall be assigned to them or each of them, from time to time, by the First Lord."

By Order in Council of 21 December, 1906, the emoluments of the Fourth Sea Lord were raised from £1,000 a year to £1,500 a year, in addition to Naval Half Pay.[1]

By Order in Council of 23 October, 1917, the office of Fourth Sea Lord received the designation Fourth Sea Lord and Chief of Naval Supplies and Transport.[2]

Work

Sir J. Edmund Commerell told the House of Commons in 1888 that when he had served as Junior Naval Lord he had had "enough to do" from half ten in the morning to half five or six in the evening. He complained that he had been left with too many details which "would have been much better not to have been left to the Naval Lords of the Admiralty."[3]
