§ MR. EDMUND ROBERTSON (Dundee)
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Admiralty if he can give an estimate of the amount of the annuities under the Naval Works Acts, chargeable to Vote 10, in each of the six financial years following the present.
THE SECRETARY TO THE ADMIRALTY (Mr. PRETYMAV, Suffolk, Wood-bridge)
The estimated amount of the annuity in 1906–7 is £1,115,800. It is not possible at present to estimate the amounts for the succeeding years, but it is probable that by 1911–12 the amount of the annuity will have risen to £1,500,000.
