HC Deb 18 March 1925 vol 181 c2240
18. Major CRAWFURD

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty the number of cruisers for the building of which the Congress of the United States of America has voted the money?


Two, Sir, which form part of a programme of eight cruisers to be laid down prior to the 1st July, 1927.

21. Mr. MORRIS

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty how many cruisers are at present being built, or are authorised to be built, by the French Government; and how many are projected?


I would refer the hon. Member to page 23 of Command Paper No. 2349—Fleets (The British Empire and Foreign Countries), from which he will see that France has five cruisers building and four projected, but not yet authorised, which it is intended to lay down between 1925 and 1929.
