§ SIR H. DRUMMOND WOLFF
asked the Civil Lord of the Admiralty, 465 Whether it is intended to omit altogether the leading men of joiners from the benefits of the new Dockyard Scheme; and, if not, whether he can state what steps will be taken in their favour?
§ SIR THOMAS BRASSEY
Sir, the inquiries of the recent Committee were limited to the shipbuilding officers and their immediate subordinates. The position of the leading men of joiners and other trades will be considered; and no decision can be taken without a careful inquiry into the circumstances of each case.
