§ Mr. PRIVETT
asked the Financial Secretary to the Admiralty the age limit for establishment of workmen employed in the Royal dockyards; and under what Regulation authority is given to the Admiralty to place a workman upon the establishment after he has reached the specified age?
§ Major BOYD-CARPENTER
Workmen entered in a hired capacity before reaching the age of 40 are eligible to be established up to the age of 50. Special exceptions in regard to age may be made under the authority of Clause 7 of the Order in Council dated 10th January, 1910, relating to the home Civil Service.
