§ 20. Dr. FORGAN
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty if his attention has been drawn recently to the unhealthy condition, through dampness, of houses situated in Nelson Road, Gourock, which are the property of the Admiralty, and are inhabited by workers in the torpedo factory; if he is aware of the inadequate methods employed by his staff to remedy the evil; and what further action he contemplates in regard to this matter?
§ The CIVIL LORD of the ADMIRALTY (Mr. George Hall)
I am aware of the present unsatisfactory condition through dampness of the houses in question, and provision is made in the Navy Estimates Vote 10 for remedying the defects by re-roofing the houses. The work is proceeding as rapidly as funds and circumstances permit and every effort is being made to make the houses weatherproof.
