16. Dr. Bennett
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty if he will publish a list of the buildings and properties at present occupied or held by his 973 Department in Hampshire, other than those in the dockyard port of Portsmouth and the Borough of Gosport.
Is it not a fact that there are a great many more stone frigates than steel ones in Hampshire?
§ Mr. Galbraith
There are more buildings in Hampshire because Portsmouth is our principal naval port and naturally. therefore, the number of outlying buildings there is larger than it is in other parts of the country.
