71. Mr. Emrys Hughes

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty if he will make a further statement as to what is the policy of Her Majesty's Government on the construction of new aircraft carriers.

Details of the building programme for aircraft carriers were given in my explanatory statement presented with the Navy Estimates for the current year. I am not prepared to anticipate next year's statement.
