§ 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.
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 2336 establishment, but it is believed it will be somewhat above the numbers now serving.
