§ 64. Sir JOSEPH WALTON
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer, whether, with a view to enable our mercantile marine to increase the stocks of foodstuffs in this country, His Majesty's Government will, without further delay, prohibit the import of everything not absolutely necessary for the prosecution of the War or for our national existence?
he PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the BOARD of TRADE (Mr. Roberts)
My right hon. Friend has asked me to answer this question. His Majesty's Government are at present considering the imposition of further restrictions with the object that the hon. Member has in view.
