HC Deb 07 June 1894 vol 25 c573
MR. BARTLEY (Islington, N.)

In the absence of the right hon. Gentleman the Member for Cambridge University, I beg to ask the Civil Lord of the Admiralty what is the reason for the delay in putting the 48 hours system into operation in Her Majesty's Dockyards; and when it is expected that the system will be established?


Some necessary delay has been caused by arranging with the War Office in regard to certain details which it was considered desirable should be identical for the two Departments. These will very shortly be settled and the scheme promulgated, but I cannot give an exact date.
