§ 98. Mr. YERBURGH
asked whether the German Naval Estimates for the next financial year will amount to £23,800,000, showing an increase of about £1,750,000 over the current year; and whether any part of this amount is to be devoted to enlarging the German building programme for 1913?
§ Mr. CHURCHILL
The German Naval Estimates for 1913–14 have not yet been presented to the Reichstag, and it would therefore be premature to make any statements or draw any inferences in regard to them.
