HC Deb 11 June 1907 vol 175 cc1215-6
*CAPTAIN FABER (Hampshire, Andover)

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Admiralty what percentage of destroyers would be available to put to sea within twenty-four hours of the declaration of war.


It is not in the public interest to answer a question of this character.


Is it not the fact that only seventy out of 120 destroyers would be fit for sea?
