§ 53. Dame Joan Vickers
asked the Secretary of State for Defence in view of the shortage of workers for the Admiralty 265W Dockyard in Gibraltar, if he will give an undertaking that, before considering the employment of Maltese or Moroccans, he will offer the employees in Her Majesty's Dockyards in Great Britain the option of taking up jobs there, in view of the fact that their numbers are to be reduced.
§ Dr. David Owen
The question of reinforcing certain trades by industrials from the home dockyards is now being urgently considered. There are signs that some limited help will be needed.
