§ MR. BROADHURST (Nottingham, W.)
I beg to ask the First Lord of the Admiralty whether he has made any further inquiry with regard to the discharge of a man named Sullivan from the Chatham Dockyard; and, if so, whether the result of such inquiry will enable him to order the re-instatement of Sullivan in the Dockyard workshops?
§ LORD G. HAMILTON
I have made further inquiry with regard to the discharge of Sullivan from Chatham Dockyard, and I find that, quite independently of the question whether he had completed his apprenticeship or not, his character as a workman was not quite satisfactory. As there is no difficulty in entering men possessing very good qualifications, I do not propose to give orders for the special re-entry of Sullivan in the yard.
