§ Sir B. FALLE
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty the number of photographers, first class, borne in the Royal Navy and where they are serving; the period allowed for home service for these ratings; whether they are drafted under the ordinary drafting regulations; whether each rating gets an equal share of sea and home service; and whether any one of these ratings is in a permanent appointment?
§ Lieut.-Colonel HEADLAM
The number of photographers, first class, borne on 1st October was five. They are subject to the usual drafting regulations so far as these can be applied to a small522W specialist branch. I am having inquiries made regarding the remaining parts of the question.
