§ Sir HILDRED CARLILE
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether the rank and pay of commissioned warrant and warrant officers of the Royal Navy can be altered as follows, so that all deserving warrant officers who have been recommended for advancement may be promoted to the rank of chief warrant officer automatically, on the attainment of fifteen years' seniority as warrant officers; and that the pay of chief warrant officers so promoted shall be the same as that now paid on attaining fifteen years' seniority, with biennial increments after the first two years of 1s. a day, and 6d. a day for every subsequent two years?
§ Dr. MACNAMARA
It is not intended to alter the rank and pay of commissioned warrant officers and warrant officers in the manner suggested by the hon. Member.
