§ MR. CONYBEARE (Cornwall, Camborne)
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty, Whether he can now state the result of the local reference which he stated would be necessary to enable him to ascertain whether any, and what, alterations in the accommodation provided for persons whose duty required them to reside or to sleep within the gates of the Devonport Dockyard had been made within the last seven years?
§ THE FIRST LORD (Lord GEORGE HAMILTON) (Middlesex, Ealing)
Twenty pounds was expended in 1886 in improving the sleeping accommodation and ventilation. The sleeping accommodation now provided is ample, as the numbers have been reduced, and the men are satisfied.
