HC Deb 05 March 1906 vol 153 cc81-2
MR. H. H. MARKS (Kent, Thanet)

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Admiralty whether contractors for harbour works are required to use British granite only; whether British granite only is to be used on the Keyham Harbour works; and whether he will give instructions that all contracts over which the Admiralty has, or may hereafter have, control shall stipulate that only British granite shall be used on such works.


The Answer to the three parts of the hon. Member's Question is in the negative; with the qualification that the Board of Admiralty cannot fetter their future action.
