asked whether the Admiralty have received official or unofficial information to the effect that the three battleships of the "Dreadnought" type and the one cruiser of the "Invincible" type provided for in this year's German Navy Estimates have already been tendered for and the estimates given out; and, if so, by what month in 1912 is it anticipated that these vessels will be completed?


According to the German Press, the orders have already been placed. It is not anticipated that any of these vessels will be completed before 1913 under normal circumstances.
