§ SIR K. TEMPLE (Surrey, Kingston)
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Admiralty what progress has been made with the arrangements for providing Gibraltar with a suitable dock for repairing vessels of war?
§ THE CIVIL LORD OF THE ADMIRALTY (Mr. E. ROBERTSON,) Dundee
The extension of the Mole, which is considered of more immediate importance, has been decided upon, and is being carried out. While recognising the desirability of providing a dock at Gibraltar, I am unable to go farther than the tenour of previous replies on the subject. The matter is being considered in relation to the general provision of docks at home as well as abroad in connection with the Estimates of the next financial year.
MR. GIBSON BOWLES (Lynn Regis)
May I ask whether any decision has yet been arrived at as to the site of the dock to be made?
