Mr. STEPHEN WALSH (on behalf of Mr. T. F. Richards)

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether he can now state the result of the inquiry into the number of apprentices being employed by Messrs. Cammell, Laird, and Company, Birkenhead, in the construction of torpedo-boat destroyers?

The FIRST LORD of the ADMIRALTY (Mr. McKenna)

My hon. Friend the Member for Birkenhead has also made representations to me on this subject, and inquiry is being made of the firm. I will communicate with both the hon. Members interested in the matter as soon as I know the result.
