§ 19. Mr. HORE-BELISHA
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether, seeing that shipwright officers are now being appointed to do a course of aircraft instruction, he can see his way to allow shipwright ratings, working under the direction of these shipwright officers, to undergo a similar course?
§ Mr. BRIDGEMAN
It is not practicable at present to arrange for shipwright 1122 ratings to undergo a course of aircraft instruction ashore, as is done for certain shipwright officers. Arrangements are, however, in force for some of these ratings to undergo a somewhat similar course of instruction on board aircraft carriers as opportunity offers.
