§ 1. Sir JOHN LONSDALE
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he has any official information showing that the Germans are using wood-fibre in the manufacture of a species of gun-cotton; and, if so, if it is his intention to place wood and wood-fibre in the list of absolute contraband?
§ The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for FOREIGN AFFAIRS (Lord Robert Cecil)
Such information as has been received on the subject is now under consideration.
§ Sir J. LONSDALE
Has the right hon. Gentleman received any information of a definite character, and is anything likely to be done?
§ Lord ROBERT CECIL
I would rather not go into the matter in further detail at the present moment. The matter is under consideration, and as soon as any conclusion has been arrived at, I shall be glad to answer any further questions.
