§ MR. EDMUND ROBERTSON
I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury whether the attention of the Admiralty has been called to the provision for eighteen additional submarine boats said to be contained in the new French naval programme; and whether there has been any modification in the policy of the Admiralty in this matter.
§ CAPTAIN PRETYMAN
The provision of additional submarine boats in the new French naval programme has received the attention of the Admiralty. A statement will be made on the subject when the Estimates are laid before Parliament.
