§ 84. Mr. RENNIE SMITH
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty the names and the tonnage of all British aircraft carriers over 6,000 tons?
§ Commander BELLAIRS
On a point of Order. If the answer to a question be immediately available from official returns, as is the case in both this question and the next, is the question allowable?
§ Mr. SPEAKER
I think hon. Members should not put questions on the Paper where the answer is available in official papers, but this has been passed and had better be asked.
§ The FINANCIAL SECRETARY to the ADMIRALTY (Lieut.-Colonel Headlam)
The desired information will be found on page 24 of Command Paper 2809, "Fleet (The British Empire and Foreign Countries)," which was recently laid before Parliament.
