HC Deb 30 May 1895 vol 34 c630
MR. H. O. ARNOLD-FORSTER (Belfast, W.)

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Admiralty, whether a despatch has been received from His Excellency the Governor of Gibraltar, with reference to the proposed new harbour and dock works at that place; and, if so, whether he will lay upon the Table of the House the despatch in question, or such portions of it as refer specially to the mercantile mole and mercantile coaling establishment?


A despatch has been received, and is under the consideration of the expert advisers of Her Majesty's Government. Until the matter has been fully considered, and a decision arrived at, it would be premature to lay Papers, but it is hoped that we shall be in a position to do so at an early date.
