53. Captain FABER
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether the first unit of the second Austro-Hungarian "Dreadnought" division was laid down at Trieste during the spring; whether its construction is being rapidly pushed forward; whether, in 1916, Austria intends to have seven "Dreadnoughts" and super "Dreadnoughts "; and whether Italy will at the same date possess ten?
§ 54. Mr. BURGOYNE
also asked whether a start has been made with any vessels of the new Austrian programme; and, if so, on what date?
§ Mr. CHURCHILL
As I stated in the House yesterday, I am not yet in a position to make any definite statement to Parliament on this subject.
