§ 38. Mr. Parker
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty whether the educational and seamanship examinations for the 42 lower deck candidates for commissions who have taken the special course for sub-lieutenant have been completed; whether he will state the results and the certificates obtained, and the number of commissions to be awarded this year?
§ Mr. Shakespeare
The results of the educational and seamanship examinations are not yet available. I hope it will be possible to publish them in the course of next week, and I will forward a copy to the hon. Member. The number of commissions to be awarded depends of course on the recommendations of the Final Selection Board.
