HC Deb 06 March 1924 vol 170 c1624W

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty whether, in view of the fact that there has not been a promotion to the rank of warrant shipwright since February, 1918, he will state when it is anticipated that the next promotion to warrant rank will be made in this branch?


Promotion to the rank of warrant shipwright has been resumed, four such promotions having been made with effect from 1st January, 1924. These are shown on page 520 of the February Navy List. Further promotions will be made as necessary to meet the requirements of the Service, within the authorised establishment.
