§ Lord C. BERESFORD
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether he was aware that dissatisfaction existed at Portsmouth dockyard owing to all of the deputations from the workmen not having been received by the Admiralty upon their recent visit; whether the Admiralty were sending representatives to receive the other deputations from the workmen, and, if so, upon what date; and whether the representatives of the men would receive notification in sufficient time to enable them to make the necessary arrangements?
§ Mr. CHURCHILL
I regret that it was not possible to hear all the petitions on the occasion of the recent visit of the Board. The remaining deputations will be heard before the end of the year, and full notice will be given.
§ Sir C. KINLOCH-COOKE
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that similar dissatisfaction prevails at other ports than Portsmouth?
