§ Mr. HEWINS
May I ask the Under-Secretary for Foreign Affairs whether the sale has been completed of two steamers of the Hamburg-Amerika line to Swedish buyers, and now awaits the confirmation of the British Government; and whether there is any truth in that report?
§ Lord R. CECIL
It is quite impossible for me to say what may have been done between the directors of the Hamburg-Amerika line and Swedish buyers. All I can say is that the British Government have given no sanction and no recognition to any such sale.
