§ MR. JAMES HOPE (Fife, W.)
To ask the Secretary to the Admiralty whether he can state what has been done up to the present to carry out the naval construction programme for the current financial year.
(Answered by Mr. Arnold-Forster.) All the necessary steps are being taken with a view to placing the orders as nearly as possible at the times arranged for in the programme, in order to earn the money voted, before the end of the financial year.
