§ Dr. Alan Thompson
asked the Secretary of State for Defence what plans he has for expanding the non-industrial staff at Rosyth Dockyard; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Hay
It is planned to increase the total number of non-industrial staff at Her Majesty's Dockyard, Rosyth, by about 65 in the year ending 31st March, 1965. These are principally required for the improvement and strengthening of dockyard management under the reorganisation plans and for increasing the facilities for repair and testing of weapons systems.
