HC Deb 05 June 1907 vol 175 cc656-7
MR. BOWERMAN (Deptford)

To ask the Secretary to the Admiralty whether the boy artificers promoted to the fifth-class engine-room artificers, and sent to ships abroad, have been favourably reported upon; and whether they are being borne as additional to the usual complement, or in lieu of others whose time has expired.

(Answered by Mr. Edmund Robertson.) The reports have not yet been received. These artificers are borne additional to complement.
