HC Deb 17 July 1929 vol 230 cc452-3W

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether he has yet considered the question of reinstating the workmen recently discharged by him from Chatham naval dockyard; and whether he has reached any decision upon the matter?


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.
