HC Deb 05 May 1937 vol 323 c1141
17. Mr. Day

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether and in what manner it is proposed further to increase the strength of His Majesty's Navy?

Sir S. Hoare

I would refer the hon. Member to the statements of Government defence policy contained in Command Papers 5107 and 5374 of 1936 and 1937 respectively, and to the remarks which I made on this subject in introducing the Navy Estimates this year, and to which I have nothing to add.
