HC Deb 24 November 1919 vol 121 c1417
13. Mr. G. TERRELL

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether the Regulation under the Defence, of the Realm Act commandeering the Royal Dutch Company shares could now be withdrawn and dealings permitted in the London market?


Yes, Sir. I am giving directions that this shall be done without waiting for the date of the termination of the War to be declared, when the Regulation would automatically lapse.
