§ 4. Sir JOHN LONSDALE
asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will introduce legislation this Session to prevent German companies from obtaining control of metals in the United Kingdom and the Dominions after the War?
Sir A. STANLEY
Yes, Sir; I trust the Bill dealing with the non-ferrous metal industries which I am introducing to-day will have the effect the hon. Baronet desires as far as the United Kingdom is concerned. The question of corresponding legislation in the Dominions is, of course, a matter for the Dominion Governments, but the hon. Baronet is doubtless aware of the Resolution adopted by the Imperial War Conference on the subject, of which I am sending him a copy.
