§ 72. Lieut. - Commander FLETCHER
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether officers of the Royal Air Force render confidential reports on naval officers attached to the Royal Air Force; and if these confidential reports are taken into account by the Board of Admiralty when the promotion of such naval officers is under consideration?
§ Sir S. HOARE
The answer to both parts of the question is in the affirmative. Full details of the arrangements for the promotion of these officers in Royal Navy rank are contained in King's Regulations and Admiralty Instructions, Article 985 (7a (i)) and 865 (12) as supplemented by Admiralty Fleet Order 1340/36.
