asked the First Lord of the Admiralty what will be the position of the British Empire, the United States, Germany, Italy, and Austria-Hungary, respectively, as to "Dreadnoughts" in commission and "Dreadnoughts" completing afloat or under construction, respectively, in the spring of 1915?
§ Dr. MACNAMARA
I must refer the hon. Member to the full information given in the Dickinson Return, Parliamentary Paper No. 537 of 6th March, 1913. It is not possible to give information which is contingent upon prospective programmes.
§ Sir C. KINLOCH-COOKE
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that- the Dickinson Return does not give the information I have asked for?
