§ MAJOR RASCH
I wish to ask the Civil Lord of the Admiralty a question of which I have given him private notice. Has his attention been called to the fact that the Board of Trade have prohibited the deposit of dredgings on the Solent; and when will the Report as to the deposit from Admiralty lighters of dredgings on the Essex Fishing Grounds be out?
§ MR. E. ROBERTSON
The answer to the first question is "No." As to the second, I have already informed the hon. Member the Report is of a confidential nature and will not be laid on the Table. It has been decided that the system of dredging must continue until the completion of the Ship Canal at Chatham—a work of Imperial importance. Then we hope a now system will be adopted.
