asked the First Lord of the Admiralty what is the present position in regard to petrol exchange with the United States Navy during the War; whether the Government of the United States of America has accepted the revised statement by the Admiralty referred to in page x of the Report of the Comptroller and Auditor-General on the Navy Appropriation Account, 1923-24; and whether he will state the amount at present due from the United States of America for petrol supplied to the Navy of that nation?


The United States naval authorities have not yet accepted the revised statement prepared by the Admiralty, and the matter is still under correspondence. Until an agreement is come to it is not possible to state what financial adjustments will be necessary.
