HC Deb 29 October 1919 vol 120 cc648-9
34. Viscount CURZON

asked how many capital ships are now in full commission belonging to the United States of America, France, Italy, Japan, and the British Empire?


The figures asked for are as follows:

United States of America 28
France Possibly 3
Japan 16
Italy (possibly fewer) 7
British Empire 18

These figures, with the exception of the British, are necessarily approximate.
