HC Deb 15 January 1913 vol 46 c2091W

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether any person at the Admiralty gave or authorised information to the Press that the Naval Estimates are to be raised in the next financial year to £50,000,000; and whether information on naval affairs and naval expenditure will be given in the first place to Parliament, and only through Parliament to the public?


The reply to the first part of the question is in the negative, and to the second part in the affirmative.
