§ 1. Commander Kerans
asked the Civil Lord of the Admiralty how many applicants there were to the Careers Office, Royal Navy, at West Hartlepool, in 1963; and how many of these finally entered the Royal Navy or Royal Marines.
§ The Civil Lord of the Admiralty (Mr. John Hay)
Five hundred and thirty-seven and 210 respectively.
§ Commander Kerans
I am grateful to my hon. Friend for giving those figures. Can he increase the advertising in the north-east area? This careers office serves a very wide area in the North and very few people know that it exists in West Hartlepool. Will he do all he can to advertise its existence in the area?
