HC Deb 09 July 1930 vol 241 c405
27. Viscountess ASTOR

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty the number of boys entered direct in the advanced class each year while the scheme was in force; and whether he can give the reason for its abolition?


The numbers entered under this scheme were:

1928 63
1929 58
The scheme was abolished as it did not appear that by it the Royal Navy was getting better recruits than by the ordinary entry, which was the object of its institution.
