ADMIRAL FIELD (Sussex, Eastbourne)
On behalf of the hon. Member for Gravesend, I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury whether the Government have purchased Tilbury Docks; and, if not, if any negotiations with that object in view are in progress?
§ MR. W. E. GLADSTONE
The docks have not been purchased by the Government, and no negotiations with that object are in progress as far as my information goes.
