§ 10. Mr. G. TERRELL
asked the President of the Board of Trade if he can furnish a list of German-owned or partly-owned firms who have up to the present, at the request of the naval or munitions-authorities, been withdrawn from the operations of the Committee dealing with the winding-up or sale of enemy firms?
The views of the Departments concerned with munitions as to the expediency of making orders-requiring businesses to be wound up under Section 1 of the Trading With the Enemy (Amendment) Act, 1916, have been obtained for the information of the Committee advising the Board of Trade on the matter, but no firms have been withdrawn from the consideration of that Committee.
§ Mr. TERRELL
Is it not the fact that particular firms, at the request of the naval and military authorities, have been withdrawn or, it may be, temporarily protected from the operations of the Committee?
