§ 1. Colonel YATE
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty how many neutral ships 2680 loaded with goods for the United Kingdom have been captured by the Germans while proceeding from Scandinavian ports to the United Kingdom and taken into German ports?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the ADMIRALTY (Dr. Macnamara)
The number of neutral ships bound to the United Kingdom from Scandinavian ports, which are believed to have been captured and taken into German ports between the 13th October, 1914, and 25th May, 1916, is 195. This number, however, must be considered approximate, as it is based mainly on information derived from published reports.
