HC Deb 21 February 1924 vol 169 cc2007-8W

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty whether a decision can now be promulgated regarding Item 23 of the 1922 Welfare Conference, which asked that the duties of the petty officer of the day be clearly defined and included in the King's Regulations; and whether, in view of the fact that the request was put forward in the middle of 1922 and that Fleet Order 1703, of June, 1923, stated that the matter was under consideration, he can say when a decision will be given?


The duties of the petty officer of the day have been more clearly defined in an Amendment to Clause 1 of Article 1735 of the King's Regulations and Admiralty Instructions, issued in October, 1923.
