HC Deb 13 May 1947 vol 437 cc144-5W
Mr. Garry Allighan

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty, how many W.R.N.S. officers' stewards are on the establishment at St. Merryn, near Padstow, Cornwall; how many there are in excess of establishment at the present date; and how many are due for release during the next month.

Mr. Dugdale

There are at present 46 W.R.N.S. officers' stewards at R.N. Air Station, St. Merryn, six more than the number allowed under present scales. Three of them, however, are overdue for release but are still there on account of sickness; and two others are being released during May.
