56. Mr. SHIRLEY BENN
asked the Prime Minister if the Shipping Controller has requisitioned Canadian-owned vessels which are on the Canadian register; and if this is in accordance with the wishes of the Canadian Government?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the MINISTRY of SHIPPING CONTROL (Sir Leo Chiozza Money)
My right hon. Friend has asked me to answer this question. The matter of the requisitioning of vessels registered in the Dominions is under discussion with the representatives of the Dominions who are now in this country. In the meantime, an arrangement has been made with the Canadian Government under which no vessels registered in Canada are being requisitioned otherwise than by or through that Government.
