HC Deb 20 December 1944 vol 406 c1804W
Mr. McNeil

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty if he has considered a memorial from the Corporation of Greenock upon the possibility of unemployment in the shipbuilding and engineering industries; and what action he proposes to take, particularly in relation to paragraphs 12 and 14 which deal respectively with the construction of a graving dock and the production of torpedoes.

Captain Pilkington

My hon. Friend will appreciate that the proposals to which he particularly refers will need to be considered in relation to other large post-war problems affecting the maintenance of the Fleet. In this setting the Admiralty will give to the Memorial the careful consideration which it merits.
