HC Deb 07 March 1929 vol 226 c580W

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether, as the new German armoured vessels will be of 10,000 tons standard displacement, he will say what figure would represent that tonnage if measured by the method which was in force at the time of the Treaty of Versailles?

Lieut.-Colonel HEADLAM

As no information has been published as to the fuel to be carried in these German vessels, it is not possible to estimate the resulting difference between the various tonnage measurements.
