10. Mr. Killen
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether the doctrine still prevails in the Navy that requires that a battleship shall keep beyond 10,000 yards from the enemy to fight her guns; if so, whether the results of this cautious policy have justified the strategy of the Admiralty; and, if not, whether he will place in the position of First Sea Lord a man of greater enterprise and resourcefulness than the present holder?
§ Sir E. GEDDES
Nothing is known at the Admiralty of the doctrine referred to, and the remainder of the question, therefore, does not arise.
