§ Mr. C. WILSON
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty, for the year 1914, the figure which is comparable with the figure 7,938 which appears in Cmd. 3504 as the civil staff of the Admiralty on 1st January, 1930?
§ Mr. AMMON
The classification of Admiralty staff into non-industrial category has been subjected to a number of modifications during recent years which have necessitated adjustments in the figures given from time to time in order to make them comparable with one another. The pre-War figure comparable with the figure 7,938, which appears in Cmd. 3504, is 5726, allowing for adjustments which are mainly on account of the transfers of certain classes of staff between the industrial and the non-industrial categories.
