HC Deb 01 July 1959 vol 608 cc46-7W
18. Mr. Willis

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty what were the numbers engaged in the Employment Liaison Section of the Directorate of Officer Appointments in April, 1955, 1956, 1957, 1958 and 1959, respectively.

Mr. C. Ian Orr-Ewing

Until early 1957, there was no officer appointed to the Admiralty for Employment Liaison duties. In April of that year it was decided to appoint one officer to the Admiralty for this purpose and, following the increase in resettlement work arising from the reductions in the Armed Forces, it was found necessary to appoint a second officer in April. 1958, and a civilian clerk in April, 1959.
