§ 37. Mr. SHINWELL
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether he is in a position to state the intention of his Department in connection with the disposal of Port Edgar?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the ADMIRALTY (Lieut.-Colonel Headlam)
We intend to dispose of the property by public competition with the exception of the oil fuel establishment and of the canteen buildings.
§ Lieut.-Colonel HEADLAM
I cannot give an exact date, but it is the intention of the Admiralty to do it as soon as possible.
§ Mr. SHINWELL
Is the Parliamentary Secretary aware that the Admiralty have had this in contemplation for quite a long time? Can he expedite the process?
