ON SHIPPING OUTPUT London, Mar. 20.-Figures on the shipping output and tonnage losses of Great Britain will be pulished regularly hereafter. It was announced in the house of commons today by Sir Eric Campbell Geddes, first lord of the admiralty, during the debate on the navy shipbuilding bill. It would not be in the national interest, however, to give the tonnage of losses up to date, the first lord added. The world's tonnage, exclusive of enemy ships, had fallen 2,500,000 tons since the beginning of the war to the end of 1917, Sir ETrlc stated. The amount of tonnage sunk in the last 12 months was six million, said Sir Eric, Instead of 9.500,000 as the Germans claim. The merchant tonnage produced In the fourth quarter of 1914 was 420 000 ' he said, and it had fallen steadily since. The total allied and neutral tonnage is 'now forty-two million. Sir Eric stated, the fact that It Is at this figure being largely due to the new construction by the United States and.the seizure of German ships. The output of new tonnage, continued the first lord, was very low in 1915 and reached Its lowest point in 1916. This decline had been coincident with the increased output of munitions and before the intensified submarine war began Brltan was 1,300,000 tons to the had. Sir Eric announced the appointment Ot Baron pierrle, chairman of the Har-land and Wolff Shipping Company as controller-general ol merchant' shipping.
