HC Deb 26 February 1919 vol 112 cc1741-2
62. Major CAYZER

asked the Prime Minister whether he is aware that the American Government through the Shipping Board are placing requisitioned American steamers or American Government standard steamers in the hands of American agents to be loaded by them against the steamers of the British lines in trades from the United States of America ports which have been built up and established by the British lines; and whether, in view of the principles advocated by Mr. Wilson in proposing a League of Nations, representations will be made to the Government of The United States with regard to the employment of national funds in this connection?


The Government cannot see their way to adopt my hon. and gallant Friend s suggestion.
