§ CAPTAIN PRICE (Devonport)
asked the Secretary to the Admiralty, Whether there would be any objection to placing chief gunners and gunners appointed to the Reserve for duties in the dockyards, on the same footing as regards length of appointments as the boatswains and master riggers of yards by the recent Admiralty Order of 2nd February 1886?
§ THE SECRETARY TO THE ADMIRALTY (Mr. HIBBERT) (Oldham)
In reply to my hon. and gallant Friend, I have to say that it is not considered desirable to alter the present limitation of three years for chief gunners and gunners appointed to the Reserve ships for duties in the Dockyards.
