§ MR. MALLET (Plymouth)
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Admiralty whether the list of established workmen in His Majesty's dockyards is now indefinitely suspended; and, if not, whether he can state when the advantages of the establishment will again be thrown open to the men.
§ MR. BRAMSDON (Portsmouth)
At the same time may I ask the Secretary to the Admiralty whether he will state when the list of established men now temporarily suspended in the Royal dockyards will be again opened, or if their Lordships have under consideration the question of permanently discontinuing such establishment.
§ MR. LAMBERT
The question of the establishment is under the consideration of His Majesty's Government at the present time.
