§ SIR BERKELEY SHEFFIELD (Lincolnshire, Brigg)
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Admiralty, the total amount provided in the Navy Estimates for 1901–2 and 1907–8, respectively, for projectiles, ammunition, torpedoes, and gun cotton.
§ THE CIVIL LORD OF THE ADMIRALTY (Mr. LAMBERT,) Devonshire, South Molton
The amounts provided for the 90 above stores in the years specified were as follows:—1901–2, £2,696,000; 1907–8, £1,282,000. I may add that in 1901–2 the Reserves were being largely increased, and a more expensive type of armour-piercing shell was introduced. The Reserves are now complete.
