13. Dr. Bennett
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty whether he still proposes to continue with the 971 large-scale expansion of Portsmouth Dockyard.
§ Mr. Galbraith
Any idea of a large-scale expansion of the dockyard was abandoned several years ago. The city council was made aware in August last of the current plan, which involves the acquisition of only some nine acres of extra land.
Are there not already far too many acres outside the Dockyard for the number of ships they have to serve?
