§ SIR JOHN LENG (Dundee)
I beg to ask the Civil Lord of the Admiralty whether, in connection with the naval base at Rosyth on the Forth, sufficient land has been acquired for the erection of dwellings for the officers and workpeople; and whether it is intended to lay out the ground on hygienic principles, to prevent overcrowding, and secure abundance of light and air.
§ THE CIVIL LORD OF THE ADMIRALTY (Mr. ARTHUR LEE,) Hampshire, Fareham
The plans of the Admiralty are not sufficiently advanced to allow of any definite information being given as to the utilisation of the land, but a portion of it will probably be available for workmen's dwellings. The Admiralty have not at present any intention of erecting such dwellings themselves, but they will take care that any dwellings erected on their property are arranged and constructed with due regard to hygienic principles.
