§ Mr. ASHLEY
I desire to ask the right hon. Gentleman whether the British small cruisers of the "Boadicea" class now completing or under construction will have an armament of six 4-inch guns to the 10 or 12 4.2-inch guns carried by German cruisers of approximately the same date, size, and speed?
§ Mr. McKENNA
The smaller type of cruisers of the "Boadicea" class have the armament stated, and are smaller than the German cruisers mentioned or than the "Bristol" class.
