HC Deb 22 November 1911 vol 31 cc1338-9W

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether, in view of the increase in the number of His Majesty's seamen, principally serving on destroyers and other small craft, who now frequent the port of Harwich, he will consider the advisability of providing a suitable sailors' home for the men; and whether he is aware that a suitable building, the disused Great Eastern Railway Hotel, is immediately available on favourable terms for such a purpose?


The question is now under consideration.
