HC Deb 06 July 1949 vol 466 c157W
36. Mr. Medland

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty what is the number of naval officers employed by the Admiralty Dockyard Department at the Admiralty, in the Royal Dockyards and on overseeing duties in industrial establishments all over the country.

Mr. W. Edwards

The number of naval officers engaged on work for the Dockyard Department is 79 and they are distributed as follows: six at the Admiralty; 65 in the Royal Dockyards; eight on overseeing duties. The officers on overseeing duties will only be needed so long as it is necessary to place some radio repair work with contractors. In addition, there are 53 naval officers regularly employed on overseeing duties by the Engineer-in-Chief and the Director of Naval Ordnance.
