HC Deb 19 February 1912 vol 34 c289

asked whether the Committee appointed to investigate the staff and administration of the Works Department, with the view of adjusting that Department to its future duties, has come to any conclusion; and, if so, whether this conclusion will be circulated in time for discussion on the Naval Estimates?

The CIVIL LORD of the ADMIRALTY (Mr. George Lambert)

The inquiry is not sufficiently advanced to enable a date to be fixed for its probable conclusion.
