§ 68. Mr. C. DUNCAN
asked the Secretary to the Admiralty whether he is aware that a large amount of extra attendance was given at the dockyards by the clerical staff of the Expense Accounts 983 Department during November and December last; whether any submissions for payment to be made have been received at the Admiralty; and, if so, can a date be given when such payment will be sanctioned?
§ Dr. MACNAMARA
The reply to the first two parts of the question is in the affirmative. It cannot be stated definitely when payment for the overtime will be sanctioned, but it is hoped that a decision will be communicated very shortly.
