§ 17. Sir C. KINLOCH-COOKE
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether, in view of the extensive naval programmes entered upon by the United States of America and Japan, and the fact that no capital ships are being laid down either in the Royal or private dockyards, he can give the House any information as to what steps, if any, the Government are taking in the matter of new naval ship construction?
§ Sir J. CRAIG
The requirements of the situation have been carefully considered in connection with the Navy Estimates for next year, and the general view of the Cabinet regarding new construction will be announced by the Chancellor of the Exchequer to-morrow.
