HC Deb 06 April 1955 vol 539 cc101-2W
77. Major Wall

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty how the percentage of established dockyard workers in Malta compares with percentage of established workers at the Portsmouth, Plymouth and Chatham dockyards.

Mr. Digby

The percentage of established posts for locally-entered dockyard workers in Malta is approximately one-seventh of the percentage in Her Majesty's Dockyards at Portsmouth. Devonport and Chatham. The circumstances determining the amount of establishment granted in the two countries are, however, quite different.
