119. Lieut.-Commander Hutchison
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty when he expects to be in a position to make a statement on the future of Rosyth.
The future of Rosyth depends upon the strength, composition, and disposition of the peace-time Fleet. These matters themselves depend upon a number of factors which cannot yet be determined, and I regret that I cannot forecast at present when I shall be able to make a statement.
