§ MR. NIELD (Middlesex, Ealing)
To ask the Secretary to the Admiralty whether the work of reconverting the "Renown" into a battleship has now been completed; what is the total cost of the alterations rendered necessary by the special service for which the ship was selected; and in what year's Estimates, and in what Vote was the cost referred to included.
§ (Answered by Mr. Edmund Robertson.) No work has been done to "Renown," but she can be completed for active fighting service at short notice. The net cost of the alterations was £12,298, mainly brought to account under Vote 8 in 1905–6.
