HC Deb 19 February 1931 vol 248 c1468W

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether, to permit of uniformity in the governance of naval personnel, he will consider the abolition of subsidiary personnel departments at the Admiralty?


I have no reason to believe that co-ordination in naval personnel matters is not already adequately provided for. Not only does efficient co-ordinating madhinery already exist, but all naval personnel matters, whatever branch of the Navy they affect, come under the superintendence of one member of the Board—the Second Sea Lord.
