HC Deb 29 March 1909 vol 3 c157W

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether in the official Returns as to the total cost of British battleships the cost of the reserve guns is included; and whether a similar practice obtains in Germany?


The cost of reserve guns is not included in the Parliamentary Returns of British battleships. It appears that the cost of reserve guns is treated in the same manner in the Estimates for both countries.
