§ 97. Commander Noble
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty if he will make a statement on the terms and conditions of service for officers and men of the R.N.V.R.
§ Mr. J. Dugdale
Entry to the R.N.V.R. for officers is at present confined to released officers who held temporary commissions during the war; their conditions of service are broadly the same as before the war. As regards ratings, I would refer the hon. and gallant Member to the very full reply given on 5th November, 1946, to the hon. Member for South Cardiff (Mr. Callaghan). A comprehensive booklet dealing fully with terms and conditions of service of both officers and ratings of the R.N.V.R. is in course of preparation and will be issued as soon as possible.
