HC Deb 07 April 1925 vol 182 cc2066-7W

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty if he is considering a scheme whereby supervisors from another grade should be introduced into the Royal Naval Store Department; whether he is aware that the prevailing system of promotion is by the passing of an examination for the established post of a store-houseman, and that successful candidates have to serve about 21 years before obtaining promotion to inspector and afterwards to foreman; and whether, in the interests of the staff affected, he will oppose any modification in the existing system of promotion which has been followed?


No such scheme for modifying the existing scheme of recruitment and promotion of storehousemen in the Royal Naval Store Department is contemplated.

Forward to
