§ 16. Sir BERTRAM FALLE
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty if boys are now being recruited for the Royal Navy and in what numbers per month; and if he can give similar information as to officers' stewards?
Sir B. EYRES MONSELL
Boys are being recruited for the seaman branch of the Royal Navy at the rate of 150 per month. The rating of officer's steward is now obsolete, but six assistant stewards, continuous service, per month are now being recruited.
