§ 54. Mr. HORE-BELISHA
asked the Prime Minister whether he has received a letter from the Executive Council of Electrical Power Engineers pointing out the hardship which accrues to electrical station engineers, in view of the operation of Admiralty Order C.E. 194/25, whereby, although their responsibilities remain the same, they have been reverted to the minimum of the scale for their grade, resulting in many cases in a financial loss of £50 a year plus the appropriate bonus; and whether it is proposed to remove the grievance brought about by the operation of this Regulation?
The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the ADMIRALTY (Mr. Davidson)
I have been asked to reply. The matter referred to has recently been under consideration, and a favourable decision has now been reached. This fact has been communicated to the Electrical Power Engineers' Association in reply to a letter addressed by them as indicated.
