46 Meanwhile the 'experts' were set to work in the Technical Committee to see where and how areas of agreement could emerge, in the rather vain hope that if something could thereby be accomplished, the principles might take care of themselvesY On 29 June, the British Cabinet discussed the impasse, and after a lengthly debate48 issued a statement to the effect that it did not question the American demand for parity, but reserved the right to build cruisers to meet its own needs. 49 This did not mollify the Americans, and on 5 July in the Technical Committee the British Admiral Field suggested that the only hope for combining the British requirement for numbers of cruisers with the reduction in total tonnage sought by the United States, 46 Britain, America and Arms Control, 1921-37 lay in the American and Japanese delegations agreeing to limit the total tonnage oflarge cruisers.
