§ 34. Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY
asked the Secretary of State for War whether he has examined the question of new fortifications for the neighbourhood of Singapore, in view of the dockyard extensions taking place in that area; whether new fortifications will be required; if so, what will be the cost, and when they will be commenced?
§ Sir L. WORTHINGTON-EVANS
I am unable to add anything at present to the reply which I gave the hon. and gallant Member on the 17th March.
§ Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY
Are we to understand that these extensive alterations and enlargements of the dockyard are going on, and that fortifications are not being commenced at the same time?
