Definition of dockyard:
The members of the half dozen boroughs where the state maintains great shops for the construction and repair of warships are always urging the interests of the workmen; and they do it with so little regard to the national finances, or to the question whether they are elected as supporters or opponents of the ministry, that they have become a byword in Parliament under the name of " dockyard- members."- "The Government of England (Vol. I)", A. Lawrence Lowell.
Complaints had been made from time to time that the Government had not availed themselves of the facilities which Cork harbour afforded for dockyard accommodation, but after the works at Haulbowline were completed, he hoped that the people of Cork would see that the Admiralty had no desire to do any injustice to Ireland in respect of the navy.- "Speeches and Addresses of H. R. H. the Prince of Wales: 1863-1888", Edward VII.
