HC Deb 16 July 1925 vol 186 cc1550-1W

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether any vacancies for lieutenant exist under the 4 per cent. basis allocated to the younger commissioned gunners and gunners in paragraph 3 of Appendix X, Part XIA, King's Regulations and Admiralty Instructions, Volume II; whether he is aware that hitherto it has been the well understood rule to promote commissioned gunners of long and zealous service in a proportion of the 4 per cent. allocated to the younger officers when fully qualified candidates are not available; and if he will say whether any departure from this rule has been authorised and, if so, by whom?
