asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether he will release the 438 building trade workers now working in His Majesty's dockyards as dilutee shipwrights, in view of the urgent necessity for these men on bomb-damage repairs and building of temporary and permanent houses in devastated Plymouth.

All restrictions on the release of workmen of the shipbuilding and engineering trades in the Royal dockyards were removed on 17th August last. It follows, therefore, that any dilutee shipwrights in the Dockyards who are building trade workers may take their discharge if they so wish.
