§ Mr. NORTON-GRIFFITHS
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty if his attention had been drawn to Sir Joseph Ward's statements that our dominions would be prepared to join in the maintenance of an Imperial Navy; and if he would consider what steps he is prepared to take with a view of supporting this suggestion at any discussion which may take place at the forthcoming Imperial Conference?
§ Mr. McKENNA
My attention has been drawn to Sir Joseph Ward's statements as they have appeared in the Press, but it would be premature to discuss now questions which should more properly be reserved for the forthcoming Imperial Conference.
Sir GILBERT PARKER
Is it not the case that New Zealand at the present moment does contribute to the Imperial Navy?
§ Mr. ARTHUR LEE
Can the right hon. Gentleman say whether there is any item on the Agenda of the Imperial Conference upon which this subject can be discussed?
