HC Deb 13 March 1917 vol 91 cc880-1
2. Major HUNT

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the amount of feeding-stuffs allowed to be imported into Denmark and Holland by the late Governments, and which were used for fattening animals sold to Germany, have now been stopped; and, if not, will he have them stopped?


I shall be happy to discuss with my hon. and gallant Friend the point which he raises in this question, but I do not think that the policy he recommends would produce the result which he desires.

Commander BELLAIRS

Can the Noble Lord say whether a decision has been obtained from the Prize Courts as to these fertilisers and fodder imported into Holland and practically re-exported in another form as horses and livestock to Germany?


I do not think that that arises on this question, and I should like to have notice of it.
