HC Deb 23 November 1938 vol 341 c1739
26. Mr. McLean Watson

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty whether a beginning has yet been made with the erection of the swimming pool at Rosyth Dockyard; and whether any progress is being made for the provision of a gymnasium?

Mr. Shakespeare

Tenders have been received and are under consideration. It has, however, not yet been possible to place a contract.

Mr. Watson

Is the hon. Gentleman aware that when I last had this question on the Order Paper I was informed that the erection of the swimming pool would be begun last month, that is, October?

Mr. Shakespeare

Yes, Sir. I think that the reply was to the effect that the contract would be placed in October, but the hon. Gentleman, no doubt, realises that at that time the staff were engaged on more important matters.
