HC Deb 25 April 1907 vol 173 cc256-7
MR. BELLAIRS (Lynn Regis)

I beg, to ask the Secretary to the Admiralty, having regard to the fact that the latest official Return, presented to Parliament last May, described the German battleships ordered as having only eight 11-inch guns as compared with ten 12-inch in the "Dreadnought," and further described the German armoured cruiser as of 14,760 tons displacement, whether the Board have received any authentic information showing an increase in the programme as regards the armament and size of the ships of the German 1906 and 1907 programmes.


The Answer is in the negative.
