HC Deb 18 March 1920 vol 126 c2368

asked the Prime Minister what is the approximate number of engineering and shipbuilding draughtsmen and designers continuously employed in Government Departments; what Civil Service establishment grades exist for such officers; what percentage of such officers are established; and to what Departments are these Civil Service establishment posts allocated?


I presume the hon. Member is referring only to marine draughtsmen. The approximate number continuously employed under the Admiralty is 939. The Civil Service establishment grades are as follows:

  • Senior draughtsmen.
  • First-class draughtsmen.
  • Second-class draughtsmen.
  • Asssitant draughtsmen.
  • Mechanics on drawing duties.
Approximately 74.9 per cent. of the officers are established. The posts are all allocated to the Admiralty.
