HC Deb 28 May 1919 vol 116 cc1210-1
49. Dr. M'DONALD

asked the Prime Minister if, in view of the fact that the British Mercantile Marine have lost thousands of lives during the War, and further that the loss in ships sustained by Great Britain amounts to over 7,000,000 tons more than that suffered by America, he will take immediate steps to convey to the Allied Conference now sitting in Paris the concern of shipping interests in Britain that a more equitable distribution of interned German ships has not been decided upon?


I regret that I can add nothing to what I have already said in reply to questions on this subject.
