§ Mr. CHARLES DUNCAN
asked the Secretary to the Admiralty whether there is any slackness in the employment of the women employed in the Gun Wharf, and, if so, could he state the reason for same?
§ Dr. MACNAMARA
The matter has engaged attention, but owing mainly to the heavy nature of the work it has not been found practicable to employ women at the Naval Ordnance Gun Wharves. It is contemplated to employ women at magazine depots on the lighter kinds of work.
