§ 15. Mr. LAMBERT
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he will inquire for what defensive reason the French Government, since 11th November, 1918, has built, or is building, 80 submarines?
§ Mr. SPEAKER
With agreements that are now made on these questions, it is difficult to say whether the Government is responsible or not.
§ Sir J. SIMON
I hardly think it would be proper for His Majesty's Government to adopt my right hon. Friend's suggestion.
§ Mr. LAMBERT
Cannot these submarines in certain eventualities be a formidable menace to the free flow of commerce in the Channel?
