HC Deb 31 October 1906 vol 163 cc1098-9
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.


The battleships have been arranged in what the Board consider to be a more efficient fighting disposition. Two battleships from the Channel, Mediterranean, and Atlantic Fleets will be added to the Home Fleet.
