HC Deb 12 November 1908 vol 196 c560
MR. ARTHUR LEE (Hampshire, Fareham)

I beg to ask the Prime Minister whether the Government accepts the two-Power standard of Naval strength as meaning a preponderance of 10 per cent. over the combined strengths, in capital ships, of the two next strongest Powers; and, if not, could he state the definition of the two-Power standard which is accepted by the Government.


The Answer to the first part of the Question is in the affirmative.
