§ 1. Sir J. D. REES
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty, whether in the middle of next year our "Dreadnought" and super-"Dreadnought" fleet, when deductions are 1153 made for Colonial, foreign, and Mediterranean requirements and for ships not ready for immediate use, will be in excess of the like fleet of Germany; and, if so, by how many battleships of the class indicated?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the ADMIRALTY (Dr. Macnamara)
My right hon. Friend has nothing to add to the statements which he made in the debates on the Estimates, and to the published Returns laid before Parliament.
