HC Deb 24 November 1884 vol 294 c251

asked the Secretary to the Admiralty, Whether it is intended to deal with the pay and position of the leading men of the engineer branch in the Dockyards in a similar manner to that recently adopted in the case of the leading men of shipwrights; and, if so, when the changes are likely to take place?


It is not intended at present to make any organic changes in the engineer branch of the Dockyards. The advancement of the leading men to the rank of Inspector would involve a general revision of the pay in the engineer branch, and for this we are not at present prepared.
