§ MR. ASHLEY
I beg to ask the First Lord of the Admiralty what was the average number of hours devoted to discussion of Navy Estimates in Committee of Supply and on Report during the two concluding years of the last Government; and what were the corresponding figures for 1906 and 1907.
§ MR. LAMBERT
In Committee of Supply Naval Estimates were discussed in 1904 on five days; 1905, five days; 1906, four days; 1907, five days. In 1904 one day was devoted to Supplementary Estimates, and there were three short discussions on Report.
§ MR. JAMES HOPE (Sheffield, Central)
Do these figures include the time devoted 748 to the Motion to go into Committee of Supply?
