HC Deb 18 July 1872 vol 212 c1370

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty, Whether he intends taking any steps to improve the position of the workmen in Chatham Dockyard?


There is a similar Question on the Notice Paper by the hon. Member for Devonport (Mr. J. D. Lewis) for a future day, and I will reply to both Questions at once. I have to inform the hon. Members that a decision has been come to with regard to the labourers, not in Chatham Dockyard only, but in the dockyards generally, which I trust will be satisfactory, and which will be communicated to them, I believe, by Saturday morning.
