HC Deb 10 May 1898 vol 57 c832
SIR C. DILKE (Gloucestershire, Forest of Dean)

I beg to ask the First Lord of the Admiralty whether it is intended immediately to increase the number of slips available in Her Majesty's dockyards for the building of battleships?

THE FIRST LORD OF THE ADMIRALTY (Mr. G. J. GOSCHEN,) St. George's, Hanover Square

The question of adding further slips to those already existing in Her Majesty's Dockyards is receiving earnest attention.
