HC Deb 31 August 1914 vol 66 c362
28. Mr. HUNT

asked the Prime Minister whether, in view of the fact that a company, consisting of members of British and other nationalities, is being formed for the purpose of acquiring German and Austrian merchant vessels which have been driven by our Navy into neutral ports, he can say what action the Government intend to take to prevent the company from using these vessels for supplying goods of any kind during the war to the countries with which we are at present at war?


My right hon. Friend has asked me to answer this question. If the hon. Member will be so good as to furnish me with particulars of the company to which he refers, the matter will be inquired into.
