HC Deb 15 April 1931 vol 251 cc170-1
11. Captain W. G. HALL

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty if he is yet in a position to make a statement on the findings of the committee set up to examine and report upon the working of the present scheme of promotions from the lower deck?

The FIRST LORD of the ADMIRALTY (Mr. A. V. Alexander)

The report is now under the consideration of the Board, and I hope to be able to make a statement on the subject in a few weeks' time.

Captain HALL

Can the right hon. Gentleman say whether the men in the writers' branch are to be considered?
