§ Mr. CHARLES DUNCAN
asked whether mechanic writers employed since before 13th April, 1907, retain their eligibility for establishment in accordance with the assurance given by Admiralty letter, dated 30th May, 1907, A.4671, which stated that no alteration except as regards increment has been made in the conditions of employment of mechanic writers?
§ Mr. McKENNA
I should be glad if my hon. Friend will allow me to inquire further into this matter, which is one of some difficulty, and not affecting my Department alone, before I give a reply.
