§ Sir C. KINLOCH-COOKE
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether the discharges at the dockyards involve any corresponding reduction in the list of establishment?
§ Dr. MACNAMARA
No decision has yet been taken to reduce the number of Established workmen on account of the reductions in the total number of workpeople employed. For the present vacancies are being filled us they occur within the total authorised numbers; but, of course, the figure at which the Established numbers are to stand in the future is a matter for future consideration.
