§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the ADMIRALTY (Dr. Macnamara)
At the great dockyards the Admiralty do not, as a rule, provide civilian dwelling houses except in the cases of a few individuals. As the hon. Member will see from Return No. 117, ordered in another place, there are 147 Civil employés engaged in the various dockyards and factories on wages bringing them within the scope of the National Insurance Act who are provided with Government houses or quarters.
§ Dr. MACNAMARA
Those who have houses have duties which compel them to reside in or about the dockyards. Generally a town has grown up with the dockyards.
