§ Mr. Biggs-Davison
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies if he will make a statement about unemployment in the Malta dockyard, and the progress of plans and measures to provide other work.
§ Mr. Lennox-Boyd

Below is a fuller statement on this and on plans for providing work outside the dockyard.
