Lieut.-Commander Fletcher

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether any tenders were invited from this country in respect of two battleships now ordered by Siam from Italy?

Mr. R. S. Hudson

If the order to which the hon. and gallant Member refers is the order for two cruisers recently placed with the Cantieri Riuniti of Trieste, the answer is in the affirmative.
