§ 14. Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty what was the number of officers and civilians, respectively, employed in the Naval Intelligence Department at the Admiralty on 1st June, 1914; and the number of officers and civilians, respectively, employed in the. Naval Intelligence Department at the Admiralty on 1st August, 19191
|1st June, 1914||…||16||…||15|
|1st August, 1919||…||42||…||120|
§ The increase is due to several new Departments, whose formation was caused by 1275 the War, being incorporated in the Naval Intelligence Department. Their activities still continue. I should add, however, that as in other Admiralty Departments, the numbers of civilian staff ought to show a considerable reduction within a very short time. During the past few months, the numbers have already been reduced in this branch from a total of 380 to the present total of 162.
