§ 61. Major Sir BERTRAM FALLE
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty the number of Royal Naval seamen boys who have qualified for, and been entered as, naval cadets under the special promotion scheme?
The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the ADMIRALTY (Mr. Davidson)
My hon. Friend is no doubt referring to the facilities which have existed since 1918 for boys entered for training as ratings who show exceptional promise, to compete at the special entry examination. The number of boys who under these arrangements have qualified for and have been entered as naval cadets is three, two of whom were seamen class boys.
