78. Mr. Awbery

asked the Civil Lord of the Admiralty how many men will be made redundant in Malta in consequence of the reduction in the strength of the labour force at the naval base announced on 14th June by the flag officer, Malta; and when this reduction will begin to take place.

Mr. C. Ian Orr-Ewing

The implications of reducing the operational facilities to those required in the future is now being considered. When decisions have been reached an announcement will be made of the extent and timing of the reduction in the numbers.
