§ SIR. WILLIAM ALLAN (Gateshead)
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Admiralty whether the designs for the two twenty-five-knot vessels to be built by the Cunard Company, for which the Government is to find the money, and also to subsidise, are to be subject to the approval of the Admiralty.
§ THE SECRETARY TO THE ADMIRALTY (Mr. ARNOLD-FORSTER, Belfast, W.)
Yes, Sir. So far as naval requirements are concerned, the answer is in the affirmative.
§ SIR WILLIAM ALLAN
Is it the intention to fit these ships with water-tube boilers, of which the Admiralty so much approve?
