MR. PIKE PEASE
On behalf of the hon. Member for the Ealing Division of Middlesex, I beg to ask the First Lord of the Admiralty whether the Admiralty will issue a Return of the ships of the "Dreadnought" and "Invincible" types now completed or which are expected to be completed by December, 1911, by Great Britain, Germany, and the United States respectively.
§ MR. MCKENNA
Information of the nature of that for which the hon. Member asks would be so unreliable that the public might be misled if such a Return was issued under the apparent sanction of the Admiralty.
