HC Deb 21 May 1947 vol 437 cc2335-6
70. Mr. K. Lindsay

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty what are the present numbers in the instructor branch of the Royal Navy; and what is the required establishment.

Mr. Dugdale

There are now 645 instructor officers in the Royal Navy. In addition, 31 officers of other branches are serving as full time education officers. It is not yet possible to give a final required establishment, but it is believed it will be somewhat above the numbers now serving.
