HC Deb 07 July 1926 vol 197 c2059
16. Lieut. - Commander KENWORTHY

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether he is considering the question of enlarging the docking accommodation at Sydney, in consultation with the Government of the Commonwealth, so as to enable it to take the largest units of His Majesty's Navy; what would be the, approximate cost; and whether the Commonwealth Government is prepared to bear part of the cost of such enlargement?


The answer to the first part of the question is in the negative, and the last part does not, therefore, arise. Without full investigation of all the conditions, no approximate estimate of the cost could be given.
