HC Deb 10 July 1903 vol 125 c1137

To ask the Secretary to the Admiralty whether an additional Naval attaché has recently been appointed; and, if so, to what country he has been accredited, and what are the reasons for his appointment.

(Answered by Mr. Arnold-Forster.) An additional Naval attaché has been appointed, and it will thus be possible to accredit separate attachés to Rome and St. Petersburgh respectively. The reason for the appointment is the additional amount of work thrown upon the existing attachés owing to the rapid and recent development of foreign Navies.
