HC Deb 12 May 1919 vol 115 cc1333-4
55. Mr. GOULD

asked the Prime Minister if he is aware of the acquisition of eighty-seven vessels aggregating over 660,000 tons formerly belonging to Germany and interned in American ports after August, 1914, by the American Government; and whether the consideration given to the German Government was discharge of a debt owing to the American Government of £20,000,000?


I am not aware that the facts are as stated in the question, but am making inquiries on the subject.
