HC Deb 21 March 1940 vol 358 cc2124-5
77 and 78. Miss Wilkinson

asked the President of the Board of Trade (1) whether he is aware that the Banco Aleman Antioquieno is, as its name indicates, a German-controlled bank; and why, in spite of this fact, the bank is not on the black list;

(2) why it has taken about six months to decide to place the Deutsch Asiatesche Bank on the black list, considering that the bank's name clearly indicates German ownership?

Mr. R. S. Hudson (Secretary, Overseas Trade Department)

I would refer the hon. Member to the answer I gave to the hon. Member for Romford (Mr. Parker) on 22nd February.
