Oral Answers to Questions — National Expenditure. – in the House of Commons on 1st March 1922.
Alert me about debates like this
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty whether the Estimates for 1922–23 have been formed in accordance with the Cabinet Instruction of 1919 on the assumption that no great war is to be anticipated within the next 10 years?
The answer is in the affirmative.
If that is so how does he reconcile it with the fact that we have far more officials at the Admiralty than before the War?
I do not think I can go into that now, but the House will probably debate the matter on the Estimates.
