Mr. SHIRLEY BENN
asked what British dry dock accommodation is available for ships of the Royal Navy in the vicinity of the Caribbean Sea?
§ Dr. MACNAMARA
The only British dry dock in the vicinity of the Caribbean Sea is a small floating dock at Trinidad. This dock belongs to the Government, and is capable of lifting 4,000 tons. It is only suitable for docking small vessels, such as third-class cruisers.
