HC Deb 30 October 1957 vol 575 c59W
78. Mr. Hector Hughes

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty if he is aware that there is concern in Malta about the diminution in employment in the Admiralty shipyards there; and if he will make a comprehensive statement as to his plans for the future of the shipyards and as to the maintenance and extension of full employment there.

Mr. T. G. D. Galbraith

I am well aware of the concern that exists in Malta about the possibility of reductions in Service expenditure there. In reply to the second part of the Question, I cannot add to the statement made by my hon. Friend, the Parliamentary Secretary to the Colonial Office on 25th July.
