HC Deb 06 April 1927 vol 204 c2090W

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty how the £250,000 contributed by Hong Kong, stated to have been expended on Singapore, has been spent?


The expenditure on the Singapore naval base, towards which the Hong Kong contribution has been allocated, is for dredging and shore works in connection with the floating dock, and for borings, anti-malarial measures, temporary water supply and housing, road and railway to the site and other preliminary works in connection with the naval base.
