§ Mr. Reynolds
The dockyards already accept outside work when they have the capacity and facilities to do so.
I am afraid that we could not justify the heavy capital expenditure needed for any significant increase in the amount of outside work already in hand.
§ Mr. Judd
asked the Secretary of State for Defence what is the official establishment strength of draughtsmen and T.G.3 personnel at Her Majesty's Dockyard, Portsmouth; how many vacancies in these categories are at present unfilled; and what is the number of temporary unqualified personnel at present filling such posts.
§ Mr. Foley
The establishment strength of draughtsmen and T.G.IIIs is 201 and 336 respectively: of these posts, two for482W draughtsmen and eight for T.G.IIIs are vacant but are in process of being filled. The present numbers of temporary unqualified staff filling draughtsman and T.G.III posts are 34 and 149 respectively.
