§ Sir J. HASLAM
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether he will, in view of the inability of the Admiralty to make a material reduction in the clerical staff, recommend the Cabinet to appoint a committee to examine the staffing of the Admiralty and issue a White Paper as a result of its investigations?
