HC Deb 26 April 1910 vol 17 c236

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether he is aware that the Bute Yard boathouse at Devonport is a mile distant from the gate; and whether he will consider the possibility of making some concession to the men working there so as to enable them to enjoy the same privilege as to dinner-time as is enjoyed by other men whose work is not so far distant from the gate?

The FIRST LORD of the ADMIRALTY (Mr. McKenna)

The new boathouse in Devonport Dockyard is slightly more than half a mile from the nearest gate; some general instructions have, however, recently been issued, which, it is understood, will meet the difficulty in connection with the dinner-time of men employed at the place named.
