§ Mr. LAMBERT
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty what was the personnel of the Navy and what number of persons were employed at the Admiralty an dat the naval outport establishments in January last?
The naval personnel (Vote A, Part 1) borne on the 15th January, 1936, numbered 96,225. Indus-46W trial staff in Admiralty outport establishments in January, 1936, numbered 52,241 at home and 15,223 abroad. I regret that the numbers of persons employed at the Admiralty and the numbers of non-industrial staff at outport establishments for January are not available, but the figures for the 1st April, 1935, were 2,693 at the Admiralty and 4,882 at naval out-port establishments at home; there were also approximately 1,200 non-industrial staff in naval outport establishments abroad.
