§ MR. ALDEN (Middlesex, Tottenham)
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Admiralty whether he will state the number of efficient Royal Naval Reserve engine-room artificers, with the numbers that have first or second-class Board of Trade certificates, and the number that have been promoted to warrant engineer without a Board of Trade certificate.
§ MR. LAMBERT
The Answer to the first Question is 521. Sixty more were enrolled at the end of last year, but they have not yet been reported upon after Naval training. The Answer to the second Question is 65, and to the third 12.
