HC Deb 29 March 1906 vol 154 c1528
* MR. HAY MORGAN (Cornwall, Truro)

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Admiralty whether the contractor for the Keyham extension works was under contract to use British granite; and that he was subsequently permitted to use granite imported from Norway; and, if so, whether the original contract price was altered by the permission to use Norwegian granite.


The contract for the Keyham Dockyard extension did not stipulate that British granite was to be used; and the contractor was therefore entitled to use foreign granite provided its quality was satisfactory.
