§ MR. PERCY M. THORNTON (Clapham)
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Admiralty whether the normal clerical establishment of all the departments of the Admiralty have yet been sent to the Treasury; and, if not, when they will be sent; and whether any promotion which may ensue on the sanction of these establishments will take effect from the same date as those lately made in the Accountant General's Department; and, if not, from what date?
THE SECRETARY TO THE ADMIRALTY (Sir UGHTRED KAY-SHUTTLE-WORTH, Lancashire, N.E., Clitheroe)
Proposals as regards the clerical establishment of the Admiralty will be before the Treasury a few days hence. Promotions to staff clerkships only take effect from the date of the Civil Service certificate in each case.
