HC Deb 11 March 1912 vol 35 c923W

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether his attention has been drawn to the landing at Rosyth of a party of sailors from one of His Majesty's ships; whether he can say upon whose request the landing was made; and if it was as a precaution against a possible strike of navvies for better wages and working conditions than those recognised as fair by his Department?


The Admiralty officials at Rosyth called attention to the possibility of a strike affecting Admiralty interests, and the senior officer thought it wise to send a small guard to the wireless station for a few days.
