HC Deb 07 December 1927 vol 211 cc1360-1
17. Mr. W. M. WATSON

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether it is intended to overhaul the floating dock at Rosyth Dockyard; whether it is proposed to do this work by dockyard labour or by outside contract; and whether, in view of the unemployment due to the closing of the dockyard, he will have the work done by local labour?

Lieut.-Colonel HEADLAM

The floating dock at Rosyth is to be refitted at an early date by outside local contract and local labour will consequently be employed.
