§ Mr. Hay
asked the Secretary of State for Defence how many shore posts in international defence organisations are required to be filled by officers of the rank of admiral; and how many Royal Naval shore establishments and posts within the Ministry of Defence are required to be held by officers of admiral's rank.
§ Mr. J. P. W. Mallalieu
Two N.A.T.O. posts are held by full Admirals, who also, of course, hold R.N. commands. There are also two posts for admirals in the Ministry of Defence, and one R.N. shore command which is held by an admiral.
