asked the First Lord of the Admiralty if he is aware that 25 naval ratings have been transferred from Chatham to the Rosyth Dockyard to take over work done by local ex-dockyard men and labourers, many of whom are drawing parish relief and have been unemployed for several years; and if this displacement of civilians from employment by members of His Majesty's forces is in accordance with the Government's scheme?

The statement in the first part of the question is without foundation, and the second part does not therefore arise.
