Example text

It signified British acceptance that she would henceforth share her naval superiority, and that she was prepared to greatly reduce her naval strength. The final product of the Washington Conference was a naval treaty which reflected the broad outlines of Hughes' original proposal although omitting limitations on auxiliary vessels, combined with agreement on security in East Asia which amounted to a recognition by Britain and America of Japan's pre-eminent position in the north-west Pacific. 66 The naval treaty adhered almost exactly to the tonnage figures for capital ship fleets that Hughes had suggested, although at Britain's insistence two of her new battle-cruisers of the 1921 programme were to be completed and substituted for older vessels.

The British proposals were more complicated, and no figures were put forward to suggest the actual levels of limitation. The Bridgeman plan included the extension of the Washington ratio to only one category of auxiliary vessel, the 10 000ton, 8-inch-gun cruiser, and made no mention of total tonnage constraints. On the other hand, it sought limitation of the size and replacement ages of auxiliary vessels, the actual fleet sizes to be determined on the basis of the absolute, not the relative, needs of each Power.

Soviet Russia was pointedly excluded, as was Germany, disarmed and stripped of her Far Eastern possessions. Within a month each country accepted; at the beginning of November the delegations gathered in Washington, and the conference opened on 12 November, the day after Armistice Day. The story of the Washington Conference has been told too many times to warrant repeating in detail here. 59 It is essential to the understanding of the later development of naval limitation, however, to appreciate the circumstances that enabled Charles Evans Hughes to put forward on behalf of the United States at the outset of the Conference his radical proposals for limitation, and which enabled the other naval powers to accept them subject to very few modifications.
