HC Deb 27 January 1937 vol 319 cc955-6W
Captain Plugge

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty what is the approximate number of established and unestablished men which will be employed in all Departments of Chatham Dockyard during the current year; and how these figures compare with those for 1936?

Lord Stanley

The numbers of workmen employed in Chatham Dockyard in 1936 were approximately 1,7oo established and 7,800 unestablished. In 1937 the number of established men will be approximately the same, but it is anticipated that the number of unestablished men will be increased by about 300.
