asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty how many persons in the Royal Navy are at present employed on building and repair work in Great Britain and overseas.

I assume that the question relates to civilian building workers employed on building and repair work for the Naval Service. During October, 1950, the number of civilian building workers so employed was approximately 8,170 in Great Britain, 190 in Northern Ireland and 5,930 overseas.
