London Times, 6 July 1908, p. 7: THE DUMA AND THE NAVY. St. Petersburg, July 5 (Reuters) The committee composed of six members of the Council of Empire and six Deputies, which has been endeavouring to reach an agreement regarding the proposal to vote 11,250,000 roubles (£1,125,000) for the construction of battleships, has failed in its object. The proposal was originally rejected by the Duma and adopted by the Council of Empire, and the representatives of the two Houses on the committee adhered to their previously expressed views.
