§ 15. Mr. PRINGLE
asked the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether any arrangement is contemplated whereby British firms prohibited from trading with companies or firms blacklisted under the Trading With the Enemy (Extension of Powers) Act will be indemnified against claims to which they may be liable under the law of neutral countries?
§ Lord R. CECIL
No, Sir; but any case where a British firm can show that it will be liable in a neutral country in respect of a transaction with a person or firm on the Statutory List, special consideration is given to the question of granting a licence enabling such liability to be avoided.
