§ 68. Sir E. CORNWALL
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he has any information as to German financiers negotiating securities in Paris and London through neutral intermediaries; and what steps he is taking to prevent this practice?
§ Mr. McKENNA
No information has reached me which tends to show that German financiers are succeeding in negotiating securities in London through neutral channels. The precautions established under the temporary regulations for the reopening of the Stock Exchanges and under the Trading with the Enemy Acts are expressly designed to frustrate any such attempts, and I have no evidence that they are not proving effective.
