§ Captain W. G. HALL
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty the total number of engine-room artificers, under the age of 30, who were eligible for the 1930 annual selection for mate (E); the number of candidates; and the number awarded commissions?
I regret that the information asked for in the first part of the question is not available. The names of 26 candidates were forwarded by fleet selection committees. Twelve of these candidates were selected to take the examination. Four were selected for promotion to acting mate (E).
