§ MR. ARTHUR LEE
Will the hon. Gentleman represent to the Admiralty the advisability, in view of the present depressed condition of the shipbuilding trade, of letting these contracts at the earliest possible moment, not only to benefit the Exchequer and the taxpayers and to relieve the pressure on a depressed industry, but at the same time to secure the use of these much needed vessels as soon as possible.
§ MR. LAMBERT
I shall be pleased to convey the representations of the hon. Gentleman to my colleagues at the Admiralty.
