§ MR. RIDSDALE (Brighton)
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Admiralty whether, under the new memorandum constituting a Home fleet, the number of battleships in full commission will be reduced.
§ MR. EDMUND ROBERTSON
The battleships have been arranged in what the Board consider to be a more efficient fighting disposition. Two battleships from the Channel, Mediterranean, and 1099 Atlantic Fleets will be added to the Home Fleet.
