§ Mr. LONSDALE
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty if he would state how many dry docks there were on the east coast of Great Britain into which a damaged "Dreadnought" could enter if she was drawing more water than ordinarily through having some of her watertight compartments flooded; and how many dry docks capable of taking a battleship of the "Dreadnought" type in similar circumstances were possessed by Germany?
§ Mr. McKENNA
There are none on the east coast of England. There are understood to be five in Germany.
§ Sir GEORGE DOUGHTY
Have the Admiralty any intention of availing them 19 selves of the opportunity of completing a dry dock suitable for "Dreadnoughts" at Immingham on the Humber?
