HC Deb 28 November 1928 vol 223 cc403-4
34. Mr. R. YOUNG

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty what is the number of engine-room artificers who entered His Majesty's naval service since 1st April last and what percentage of the number were entered direct from outside engineering works?

Lieut.-Colonel HEADLAM

Twenty-nine engine-room artificers have been rated since 1st April last after training in the Service as artificer apprentices; 10 have been entered from outside engineering works and two from His Majesty's dockyards. The percentage of entries from outside engineering works is, therefore, 24.
