§ MR. EDMUND ROBERTSON (Dundee)
I beg to ask the Civil Lord of the 18 Admiralty whether he can give an approximate estimate of the cost of the naval works at Chatham, Rosyth, and the Coastguard stations?
* THE CIVIL LORD OF THE ADMIRALTY (Mr. ARTHUR) LEE, Hampshire, Fareham
I cannot add anything to the statement made last year by the Chancellor of the Exchequer in respect of the cost of the works at Chatham, Rosyth, and Coastguard stations.
§ * MR. ARTHUR LEE
I think the figure was put at £4,500,000. The preliminary work at Rosyth has just been concluded, but the detailed plans relating to the works mentioned have not been finally approved.
