Major DAVID DAVIES
asked the Prime Minister whether any new circumstances have arisen which make the formation of the Far Eastern Fleet, proposed by Admiral Jellicoe, necessary?
§ Mr. BONAR LAW
The Dominions are obtaining the independent advice of a distinguished admiral on the naval situation, which has been largely modified by the War. It would be premature to canvass in this House the questions with which Lord Jellicoe has dealt until the views of the Dominion Governments have been formulated and have been discussed between them and the Home Government.
