§ Mr. FALLE
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty if he is aware that the steam travelling-crane drivers working in the engineer department, Portsmouth Dockyard, are not provided with fearnought suits of overalls, while the locomotive drivers of the same department are so provided; and if he is able to remedy this oversight?
§ The SECRETARY to the ADMIRALTY (Dr. Macnamara)
The reply to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. Requests for the supply of over-all clothing have come before me at the annual 550 hearing of petitions, though I do not recall this particular request. However, I am looking into the matter in connection with the replies to the other petitions.
