§ CAPTAIN NORTON
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury whether the Treasury has yet received from the Admiralty the normal clerical establishments of all its various departments, fixed in accordance with the recommendation of the Royal Commission on Civil Establishments, and called for by Treasury Minute of 10th August, 1889; and, if not, whether he will call upon the Admiralty to carry out the recommendation of the Commission without further delay?
§ THE CIVIL LORD OF THE ADMIRALTY (Mr. EDMUND ROBERTSON, Dundee)
As I stated in my reply to the hon. Member for West Limerick on the 7th inst., the normal clerical establishment of the Accountant General's Department has been fixed, and it is expected that a settlement of the other Admiralty Departments will shortly be effected.
