HC Deb 13 May 1918 vol 106 c8
13. Mr. KING

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether representatives of the Government of Iceland are, or have been, in this country with the object of renewing a commercial agreement or making new arrangements for communications between Iceland and this country; and whether a satisfactory conclusion has been reached?


Delegates from the Icelandic Government are now in this country to negotiate an agreement with His Majesty's Government and the Allied Governments where by it is proposed that Iceland shall secure her essential supplies in return for the sale to the Allies of Icelandic produce required by them. It is hoped that a satisfactory arrangement will be concluded at an early date.
