§ Sir C. KINLOCH-COOKE
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether many small tradesmen are suffering severely, and many holders of licences are applying for parish relief, owing to the lack of ships being berthed at North Corner, Devonport; and can he do anything to relieve the position?
§ Commander EYRES-MONSELL
There is only one buoy in the vicinity in question where His Majesty's ships are berthed, and the extent of its use is governed by naval requirements. I am afraid the Admiralty cannot take any special action in the matter.
