§ Mr. LAMBERT
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty what naval expenditure has been incurred at Singapore; what is the revised total estimate; and when the naval works will be completed?
The total expenditure on the Singapore Base, including the floating dock, which has been met front Navy Votes to date, is approximately £2,772,000. As regards the second and third parts of the question, I would refer the right hon. Member to my reply of 9th July last (OFFICIAL REPORT, cols. 405–6) and to page 40 of the Summary of the Proceedings of the Imperial Conference (Cmd. 3717). The date for completion of the main works (Jackson) contract is September, 1935.
