§ SIR JOHN LENG (Dundee)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Colonies if the construction of the proposed graving dock at Colombo has been decided upon, and when a commencement will be made?
§ THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR THE COLONIES (Mr. J. CHAMBERLAIN,) Birmingham, W.
The question is still under consideration, and it is hoped that a decision may be shortly arrived at.
§ SIR JOHN LENG
I beg to ask the First Lord of the Admiralty if the propriety of a contribution to the construction of a graving dock at Colombo has been considered, and with what result?
§ THE FIRST LORD OF THE ADMIRALTY
The subject has been considered by a Committee of Colonial Office and Admiralty officers, whose Report has just been received.
