§ Mr. R. BEAUMONT
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty whether he is aware that the conditions of service of women tracers employed in Admiralty establishments are in many respects inferior to those of the clerical branches, and that they are unable to qualify for pensionable establishment; and if he will investigate the matter with a view to improving these conditions and enabling women tracers to become established?
I would refer the hon. Member to the answer which was given by the Financial Secretary to the Treasury to a similar question on the 6th February. No proposals concerning women tracers in Admiralty establishments have since been received from them or their representatives.
