Mr. F. HALL
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty if the proposals with regard to the disposition of the Fleet recently announced by him were made after consultation with representatives of any of the Colonies; and if his attention has been called to the statement by the Australian Minister of Defence to the effect that those proposals involve a reversal of the policy previously settled?
§ Mr. CHURCHILL
My statement on this subject in introducing the Estimates is self-explanatory, and I have nothing to add to it. I have seen the newspaper reports referred to.
