§ 117. Commander Noble
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty how many resignations from, and recruits to, the Royal Corps of Naval Constructors have taken place in 1950; and whether there has been any change since 1945 in the conditions required to be fulfilled by the recruits to this corps.
§ Mr. W. Edwards
There have been three resignations from and three recruits to the Royal Corps of Naval Constructors during 1950. In April, 1949, the bond under which recruits undertook to remain in His Majesty's service for seven years after completing their course at Greenwich was abolished for an experimental period of five years. There has been no other change since 1945 in the conditions required to be fulfilled by recruits to the Corps.
