§ Mr. MEYSEY-THOMPSON
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty what is the total sum provided in the Navy Estimates for 1910-11 of Great Britain, Germany, the United States, and France for the material upkeep of their navies, including the sum provided for repairs as well as that for new construction and armaments, and prepared upon a similar basis to figures which have been given to this House for recent years?
§ Mr. McKENNA:
United Kingdom,£17,558,096. So far as can be ascertained from the published Estimates of the various countries, the sums are:
France … £6,464,145 United States … 10,082,265 Germany … 13,149,888
But it must be understood that these figures are only given with the qualification that, owing to the form in which the foreign Estimates are presented, material inaccuracies may have arisen in the separation by us of the various items.
