HC Deb 28 March 1956 vol 550 c208W
72. Mr. Lewis

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty why the civil staff in his Department increased by 115 between 1st October, 1955, and 1st January, 1956.

Mr. Digby

This figure appeared in Command Paper No. 9701 because of the transfer of one hundred and eighty-four civilian instructors at Fleet establishments from industrial to non-industrial status. There was no actual increase in the total number of civilians employed.
