§ MR. J. D. PALMER (Gravesend)
May I ask the Secretary to the Admiralty whether it is true, as has been stated, that the Government have purchased the Tilbury Docks; and, if not, are any negotiations in progress with that object?
SIR U. KAY-SHUTTLEWORTH
I only received the hon. Member's notice as I entered the House. I have no information with regard to the matter. The question should have been addressed to some other Department.
