§ 80. Major Sir GRANVILLE WHELER
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty why the undertaking that no established man should be discharged while a hired man of the same trade remains is being departed from?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the ADMIRALTY (Lieut.-Colonel Headlam)
I am afraid my hon. and gallant Friend is under a misapprehension. I know of no such undertaking.
§ 81. Sir G. WHELER
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty the number of established men who have been discharged from His Majesty's dockyards for reasons of economy within the last six months or are now under notice of discharge?
§ Lieut.-Colonel HEADLAM
I think I am entitled to notice of that question. I do not know exactly what their services have been.
