HC Deb 29 May 1911 vol 26 c694

asked how much has been expended in the construction of docks by the Government for the first-class battleships during the past ten years; and how much has been expended by Germany on the same object in the same period?


The separation of actual expenditure on docks from that on contingent works such as basins, pumping stations, and many other large items, is a matter of such difficulty that it is not possible to give the comparative figures asked for by the hon. Member.
