HC Deb 02 April 1917 vol 92 c914
98. Mr. G. LAMBERT

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether, in the table of losses caused by hostile submarines issued by the Admiralty, the number of arrivals and sailings include British, allied, and neutral tonnage, while the losses apply only to British tonnage?
