§ 23. Commander SOUTHBY
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty if he can make a statement as to what ships of His Majesty's Navy it is intended to place upon the sale list during the current financial year?
On the assumption that the London Naval Treaty will be ratified in the near future, the list of ships to be disposed of during the current financial year is under consideration, but no further statement can be made at present.
§ Commander SOUTHBY
Can the right hon. Gentleman say when he will be in a position to make a statement?
I think the hon. and gallant Member had better reserve his questions about ships for disposal until the House has had an opportunity of dealing with the new programme.
