91. Brigadier Clarke
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty how many dockyard employees have been forced to revert to the paint shop as an alternative to discharge since the introduction of the new merit pay scheme.
§ Mr. W. Edwards
Nine welders and nine caulkers have become redundant at the Royal Dockyards since the introduction of the new merit pay scheme. Of these, four welders and two caulkers elected to take their discharge, and the remainder have reverted to the paint shop as skilled labourers.
