§ 10. Mr. LAMBERT
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty if he will communicate any new decisions that have been arrived at for the defence of the naval base at Singapore?
Sir B. EYRES MONSELL
The defences of the base at Singapore are primarily a matter for the War Office. As far as the Admiralty are responsible, such decisions as have recently been made refer only to the normal defences of a naval base. The provision of these defences is proceeding concurrently with the progress of the work on the base.
