HC Deb 21 January 1924 vol 169 c540W

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty if he can state what progress has been made to give effect to the statement of the Prime Minister in regard to laying down new light cruisers; and what proportion of the work it is proposed to give to the shipyards and factories on the Tyne?


I propose to make a brief statement on the subject in the course of this afternoon's Debate.
