HC Deb 20 February 1917 vol 90 cc1154-5
29. Mr. W. YOUNG

asked the President of the Board of Trade what action, if any, has been taken with reference to firms in the United Kingdom whose branches have been placed on the black list in any of His Majesty's Dominions?


Such of the firms referred to as are within Section 1 of the Trading With the Enemy Amendment Act, 1916, have been dealt with either by winding-up or by vesting the shares in the custodian for the purpose of sale, but there are some cases which are not within the terms of the Section.


Will the hon. Gentleman ask the Colonial Office about the matter and see if the question of the black list in the Colonies could not be dealt with in this country?


I will submit that point to my right hon. Friend.
