§ Mr. R. Carr
asked the Civil Lord of the Admiralty what steps have been taken to improve and enlarge Organisation and Methods and Work Study procedures at headquarters in pursuance of Recommendation 9 of the First Report of the Select Committee on Estimates in Session 1959–60.
§ Mr. C. Ian Orr-Ewing
The strengthening of the Organisation and Methods Branch to which I referred in my statement on 14th February has taken place. The additional six staff have completed or will shortly complete their training. Steps are being taken to extend the services of the Organisation and Methods Branch to establishments overseas. Certain security responsibilities have been transferred elsewhere so that the directing staff can concentrate more on assignment work.
