§ 8. Mr. BURGOYNE
asked whether all the large ships of the 1912 German programme have actually been commenced; and, if so, what are the approximate dates of their laying down?
§ Mr. CHURCHILL
All large ships of the German 1912 programme have actually been commenced, but in the absence of definite information as to the dates on which they were laid down it is preferable not to hazard any approximations.
