THE NAVY QUESTION,
London, January 21.
Keen controversy is going on regarding to morrow's Cabinet meeting. It is expected that Mr Asquith will decide in Mr Churchill's favour.
The key of tbe problem is the rela tion of the dominions' warships to the British standard, particularly the New Zealand and Canadian dreadnoughts.
'J he "Chronicle" considers tbat it was a false step to accelerate three to replace the Canadians, which, with the clearing away of arrears in building construction, has swollen the year's expenditure by an extra four and a half millions.
While the "Chronicle" does not question the laying down of four Dreadnoughts for tbe coming year, the "Daily News" urges that there should be only two.
