HC Deb 03 December 1920 vol 135 c1612W

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty whether he has yet come to any decision since July regarding the rates of pay of officers in the inspection and design branch of the Royal Navy; and why, as the officers of the above branches of the Naval Ordnance Department hold permanent appointments which are in all respects civilian, they have not had their pre-War salary increased as have other Government employés?


At the present moment the whole of this question is engaging the attention of a Special Committee, and consideration of the matter referred to must await the Report of that Committee.
