§ Sir B. FALLE
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty whether the qualification for warrant writer mentioned in Article 318, paragraph 3, of the King's Regulations and Admiralty Instructions are in order of priority; if so, whether the last promotion made to this rank was the first on the roster under the provisions of the Regulation quoted; and how many chief petty officer writers had passed both educationally and professionally before the man last promoted?
§ Lieut.-Colonel HEADLAM
The answer to the first part of the question is in the negative and therefore the, second part of the question does not arise. No chief petty officer writer had passed both educationally and professionally before the man last promoted.
