§ 14. Mr. HANCOCK
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether any war vessels of any kind are now being constructed for foreign Powers in private dockyards in Great Britain; if so, how many; and is there any International Treaty that prohibits such construction?
§ Mr. AMERY
There is no International Treaty prohibiting the construction of war vessels, though the Washington Treaty prescribes certain limits as to tonnage and armament. With the exception of a coastal motor boat being built for Siam, no war vessel is under construction for any foreign Government at the present moment.
