It has been decided that in cases where established men are redundant at Rosyth, those under 50 years of age are to be given the option of re-transfer to southern yards or discharge with any allowances for which they may be eligible under the Superannuation Acts; those over 50 years of age who are redundant will be discharged—also with superannuation allowances. It is already certain that a number of established men will be redundant, but that number depends upon questions not yet settled.
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty how many men have been discharged from Rosyth naval base since 1st February; and how many dismissals have taken place at Chatham, Portsmouth, and Devonport during the same period?
1,043 workmen have been discharged from Rosyth Dockyard since 1st February. The numbers discharged during the same period at Chatham, Portsmouth, and Devonport are, respectively, 148, 369, 250; the rate of discharge at these three yards will be considerably increased as from the 18th instant. These figures relate only to Vote 8.
