§ Sir CHARLES HENRY
asked the number of those of military age in the service of the Admiralty on 30th September who had received commissions and who, since the beginning of the War, have not been engaged in active naval or military service?
§ Dr. MACNAMARA
There are eighty officers of military age, with temporary commissions, now serving at the Admiralty who have not been engaged in actual naval or military service since the beginning of the War. Nearly all of these are employed in the Air Department in connection with the design and production of material for the Royal Naval Air Service, and were entered for this and no other purpose.
