asked the First Lord of the Admiralty how many paid appointments to posts outside the Civil Service he is responsible for making; what is the nature of each appointment; and what salary is payable in each case.

I assume my hon. Friend is not here concerned with my right hon. Friend's responsibility for the Greenwich Hospital posts, which are specified in detail in the Greenwich Hospital Estimates and presented to the House annually. The only other civilian appointments outside the Civil Service for which my right hon. Friend is responsible are the three directors of Messrs. S. G. Brown Ltd., Instrument Makers and Precision Engineers. I regret I cannot disclose the salaries paid by the company to the two non-Admiralty Directors. The Admiralty receives a fee of 50 guineas a year for the Admiralty Director.
