HC Deb 18 June 1907 vol 176 c288
MR. BELLAIRS (Lynn Regis)

To ask the Secretary to the Admiralty, whether, as the sums paid in lieu of rates for the Royal Dockyards to local authorities appear on the Civil Service Estimates, it is to be understood that the prices quoted for Government work in building ships do not include any proportionate charges for the payments in respect of contributions to local authorities, whereas the private ship-builders have to allow for their payments of full rates levied by the local authorities.

(Answered by Mr. Edmund Robertson.) The Answer is in the affirmative.
