asked the Secretary of State for Defence if he will make a statement on employment of civil servants in the Royal Dockyards.

The Royal dockyards employ about 33,000 civil servants consisting of various craft and non-craft industrial grades and professional, technical and administrative staff. As I announced on 25 October 1979, a study of the Royal dockyards has been set in hand. This study is not yet complete and regarding its outcome, I have nothing to add to the reply given on 12 February by my right hon. friend the Secretary of State.
