HC Deb 28 January 1902 vol 101 cc1101-2
MR. FENWICK (Northumberland, Wansbeck)

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Admiralty, whether any arrangement has been made to enable engine-room artificers to obtain warrant rank before they have reached the age of 35 years; if so, can he now state the terms of the arrangement.


Yes, Sir. Engine-room artificers will in the future be eligible for the warrant rank of artificer engineer after 8 years confirmed service instead of 10, and the minimum limit of age at which they may obtain the rank has been reduced from 35 to 29 years.
