§ Sir R. GOWER
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether he has yet considered 453W the question of reinstating the workmen recently discharged by him from Chatham naval dockyard; and whether he has reached any decision upon the matter?
§ Mr. G. HALL
As explained in the reply to the hon. Member's question on 8th July (OFFICIAL REPORT, Column 501), the recent discharges from Chatham Dockyard were due to a normal fluctuation of work in the dockyard. In the circumstances it is not possible to make any re-entries.
