§ 29. Mr. R. YOUNG
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty, whether the present facilities for training and messing artificer apprentices at Chatham are adequate for the 600 apprentices to be transferred; whether any further extension of workshops and messes is contemplated; and, if so, what is to be the approximate cost?
§ Lieut.-Colonel HEADLAM
It is under consideration to transfer the entire training of artificer apprentices to Chatham, which will involve increased workshop and living accommodation for them at that port. The proposal has not yet proceeded far enough for an estimate of cost to be stated.
