I shall not attempt to reply at any great length to the hon. Member for West Islington, because I think it will be admitted that I have been discharged from that task by the speakers who, followed him. The most convenient course will be to come to a decision at once on the Amendment proposed by the hon. Member. I think the most important matter calling for notice was, the observation of the hon. Member twitting me for not supplying information. He has asked me to secure certain information for him. The information which has been asked is of a very complicated character, and the Admiralty have been engaged in collecting it since the request for it was made. I feel it to be my duty, where I can do so, to furnish hon. Members with any information which it is in my power to obtain. With regard to the matter of the hon. Member's speech. I have nothing to say which has not already been well said by other speakers. I hope that my right hon. friend the Member for the Forest of Dean will allow me to postpone the answer I have to make to his speech until later.
