HC Deb 19 December 1935 vol 307 cc1989-90W
Captain PLUGGE

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty whether in connection with the fact that naval dispositions during recent months have necessitated the bearing of a larger number of officers and men in His Majesty's Navy than was allowed for in the Estimates, he can state whether it has also been necessary to increase the number of employés in His Majesty's Dockyards and other naval establishments; and whether an increase in the number of such employés is contemplated during the next few months?


The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative; the possibility of a further increase depends on the amount of work which may be allocated to the dockyards and other establishments during the next few months.
