§ 33. Squadron Leader Burden
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty how many persons are employed on the 223W civil side of his Department, excluding industrial operatives in naval dockyards; and how does this number compare with 1939.
§ Mr. W. Edwards
The non-industrial staff employed by the Admiralty, excluding local entrants abroad, numbered 11,899 in January, 1939, and 30,801 in April, 1950. These figures are not directly comparable owing to the many transfers of staff to non-industrial status since 1939.
