AGITATION NOT A PARTY MOVE. (Received 8.10 a.m.) LONDON, March 28. In the House of Commons yesterday, during the discussion on the naval vote, Mr. E. Beauchamp, Liberal member for Lowestoft and a former chairman of Lloyds, and Mr. A. C. Beck, Liberal member for Wisbech, urged the Government to include the four conditional Dreadnoughts in the 1909-10 programme. Mr. E. R. Ridsdale, Liberal member for Brighton, emphasised the grave anxiety existing through the length and breadth of the land. He said it -was unfair to describe this as an agitation manipulated for party purposes. "It can be allayed," he continued, "at the cost of four Dreadnoughts. Then, for Heaven's sake, why not lay them down." (Opposition cheers.) The Lord Mayor of Bristol declined to receive a Navy Leagut deputation in favour of calling a' meeting to" support a strong' naval policy, declaring that a 9 a vote of censure was being discussed the question was now a political one.
