§ 61. Mr. RENNIE SMITH
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty if the total tonnage provisions for aircraft carriers of the Washington Agreement were intended to cover every size of aircraft carrier?
§ The FIRST LORD of the ADMIRALTY (Mr. Bridgeman)
No, Sir, the total tonnage provisions include only vessels of war whose tonnage is in excess of 10,000 tons, which are designed exclusively for carrying aircraft, and are such that aircraft can be launched therefrom and landed thereon.
