Portsmouth Royal Dockyard Apprentices
Navy Supplementary Estimate - Hansard Report February 1951
Mr. Callaghan I question that; I have a longer connection with Portsmouth than has the hon. and gallant Member.
Brigadier Clarke That I doubt, as I was born there and have been there for many years.
Mr. Callaghan In that case, it is a draw because I was born there also.
Brigadier Clarke I was there first.
Mr. Callaghan And I remember reading the figures of unemployment before the war, as I expect the hon. and gallant Member also remembers. This is the case; it is no use burking the issue. In the days when I was at the Portsmouth Secondary School the height of one's ambition was to go into Portsmouth Dockyard because there was nowhere else to go, except into the Civil Service, as I did.
