MR. W. T. WILSON (Lancashire, West-houghton)

To ask the First Lord of the Admiralty whether, when engaging the extra men for doing repair work in connection with the Royal dockyards, buildings, etc., preference will be given to workmen who have previously worked in the yards and to unemployed workmen who are bona fide residents in the town where the work is.

(Answered by Mr. McKenna.) Orders to this effect have already been given.
