HC Deb 28 November 1938 vol 342 c52W
Mr. Parker

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty how many flag officers on the active list of the Royal Navy were on full pay for the period 28th September to 2nd October last, and, of these, how many were, respectively, in appointments afloat, in shore appointments, and unemployed; and what were the numbers of serving warrant officers, officers promoted from warrant rank, and of chief petty officers who were surplus to requirements in the same period?

Mr. Shakespeare

I regret that it would not be in the public interest to give these details of naval mobilisation arrangements.
