HC Deb 24 November 1920 vol 135 cc410-1
19. Mr. R. YOUNG

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether in small ships cabins have been provided and marked chief engine room artificer; whether such cabins are now so marked; and, if not, by whose authority has the marking been removed?


It is not the practice to provide cabins for chief engine room artificers. In one class of small vessel, not built to Admiralty designs, such cabins were so marked, but the Board of Admiralty decided that such cabins should not be allocated to chief engine room artificers.

Lieut. - Commander KENWORTHY

Are we to understand from that that these cabins are not now being used and are not being given to these men?


No. These small ships have four cabins, three of which are occupied as state rooms, and the fourth is kept for the surgeon in case he has to come on board.
