§ 7. Mr. D. G. SOMERVILLE
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty whether the construction of a cruiser has been allotted to Barrow-in-Furness; and when he anticipates that the work will be commenced?
§ The CIVIL LORD of the ADMIRALTY (Mr. Hodges)
Yes, Sir. I understand that the contractors expect to begin work very shortly, but I have no information as to the exact date.
