HC Deb 15 June 1910 vol 17 cc1299-300

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether he was aware that petitions from dredgermen, skilled and unskilled workmen, and hired workmen in Portsmouth Dockyard have not been answered; and whether he will make inquiries into the matter with a view to sending replies as early as possible, the replies having been promised by the end of April?


also asked the right hon. Gentleman whether he can now inform the House of the date on which replies may be expected to the petition from Devonport Dockyard?


I would refer the Noble and gallant Lord, and also the hon. Member for Devonport, who has a similar question on the Paper, to the reply given yesterday to the hon. Member for the Barnard Castle Division, in which I explained how it is that the replies have not yet been issued, and regretted the delay that has taken place.
