§ MR. RIDSDALE (Brighton)
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Admiralty which of the armoured cruisers allowed for in the Estimates of 1905–6 have been laid down.
§ *THE CIVIL LORD OF THE ADMIRALTY (Mr. LAMBERT,) Devonshire, South Molton
The "Invincible," "Inflexible," and "Indomitable" have all been laid down, but the fourth armoured cruiser included in the programme of new construction for 1905–6 has been abandoned, as intimated in the statement explanatory of the Navy Estimates for the current year (Cd. 2837).
