HC Deb 09 August 1905 vol 151 c803

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether he will reconsider the question of removing the Royal Engineers from Chatham now that the proposed new naval base at Rosyth is likely to lead to less accommodation being required at Chatham for the Navy.


I am not aware that the construction of the naval base at Rosyth will affect the accommodation required by the Navy at Chatham for the purposes which have necessitated the removal of the Royal Engineers.
