§ MR. SEAGER HUNT (Marylebone, W.)
I beg to ask the First Lord of the Admiralty whether there are in the Admiralty Department any vacancies in the higher grade of the Second Division of clerks to which, under the Order in Council of 21st March, 1890, promotion should be made; and, if so, why the vacancies have not been filled?
§ THE FIRST LORD OF THE ADMIRALTY (Lord G. HAMILTON, Middlesex, Ealing)
There is a vacancy in the higher grade caused by the non-promotion of a Second Division clerk who has 1828 reached the £250 limit. The question of filling that vacancy is now under consideration, and the fittest man will be selected.
