HC Deb 16 April 1861 vol 162 cc643-4

said, he wished to ask the Secretary to the Admiralty. If the Officers of the Woolwich Dockyard have recently made any Report or Reports to the Admiralty upon the statements contained in the Report of the Royal Com- missioners appointed to inquire into the management and control of Her Majesty's Dockyards, as to the number of errors alleged to have been discovered in certain documents in the departments of the Storekeeper, the Accountant, and the Chief Engineer; and if so, whether it is the intention of the Government to lay the same upon the table of the House?


said, that the Admiralty had received a very lengthy Report from the Officers of the Woolwich Dockyard, and that Report had been referred to the principal officers of the department in order that they might make inquiries into the statements it contained. Under these circumstances he was not at present in a position to state whether he would be able to lay the document upon the Table of the House.
