§ MR. ASHLEY (Lancashire, Blackpool)
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Admiralty whether he can state the result of the tests recently carried out to determine the effect of the London County Council power station on the instruments used at Greenwich Observatory; and whether the Observatory is to be removed from Greenwich.
§ THE CIVIL LORD OF THE ADMIRALTY (Mr. LAMBERT, Devonshire,) South Molton
A full examination of the whole question is now being conducted, and it would be premature to make any statement on the subject.
§ MR. ASHLEY
When may we have some answer on this very important subject? I have been asking two months.
§ MR. ARTHUR LEE (Hampshire, Fareham)
May I ask the hon. Gentleman whether, if the inquiry should prove that the power station is an injury to the Observatory, he will consider the solution of removing the power station instead of the Observatory?
