HC Deb 20 July 1927 vol 209 cc382-3
14. Mr. W. M. WATSON

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty if there has been any change in the policy of his Department with regard to Rosyth Dockyard; and whether negotiations are still proceeding with private firms for the utilisation of any part of the dockyard property?

Lieut.-Colonel HEADLAM

Lieut.-Colonel HEADLAM
