§ Mr. HANNON
asked the Lord Privy Seal if he can indicate when the construction of the second tank at Teddington for the testing of ship designs will be commenced; if this experimental project has the approval and sympathy of the shipbuilding industry; and what will be the cost of the scheme?
It is not yet possible to state when the actual work will be started, but the necessary plans and designs are now in active preparation. The answer to the second part of the question is in the affirmative. The preliminary estimate of cost is £45,000.
