HC Deb 03 August 1909 vol 8 c1692
Mr. CULLINAN (for Mr. Dillon)

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he still accepted as made in good faith the declaration of the German Government that Germany will not accelerate her naval programme, and will not have 13 ships of the "Dreadnought" type, including cruisers, till the end of 1912; and whether before last Monday any information had reached the British Government tending to cause them to believe that any change had taken place in the intentions of the German Government?


The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative, and to the second part in the negative.
