HC Deb 09 April 1913 vol 51 c1195W

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether he is aware that, when he introduced the Navy Estimates, the German Government intended to expend several million pounds on aircraft immediately; and, if not, whether he intends to introduce a Supplementary Estimate with a view to increasing the number of British naval aircraft?


As the Prime Minister stated in the House in reply to the hon. Member for Brentford on Wednesday last, all new facts arising after the presentation of the Estimates of the year which may affect the naval or military position are considered by the Departments concerned, and any further action which is found necessary can and will be taken without delay.
