HC Deb 01 March 1917 vol 90 c2140
41. Mr. W. THORNE

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he is aware that German firms are placing upon the market colonial produce lying to their account at the various docks and warehouses; and, if so, whether he will order the money obtained to be held until after the War?


I am not aware of the circumstances to which my hon. Friend refers, but if he will let me have particulars of the cases he has in mind I will cause inquiries to be made in the matter.
