§ SIR H. DRUMMOND WOLFF
asked the Secretary to the Admiralty, Whether any answer has been or will shortly be sent to the petition presented to the Admiralty by the established riggers in Her Majesty's Dockyards?
§ MR. CAMPBELL-BANNERMAN
Sir, several representations have recently been received from the Dockyards in favour of an increase of pay. So far as this year is concerned, no provision has been made for such a purpose; but, before the next Estimates are framed, the claims which have been urged will receive full consideration.
