GERMANY'S PROGRAMME.

STATEMENT AND TACT.

THE BATE OF CONSTRUCTION.

LONDON, March 26. In the House of Commons last evening Mr Asquith stated, replying to Mr J. Uretton (Unionist member for Rutland), that Germany's intention not to accelerate her shipbuilding programme was first intimated to Britain verbally, through diplomatic channels, on March 10. The intimation added that Germany would not have 13 Dreadnoughts till {he end of 1912.
