§ 21. Mr. F. Willey
asked the Minister of Food why, and for what purposes, he has chartered Japanese shipping.
§ Major Lloyd George
Foreign ships, including Japanese ships, are chartered from time to time on my behalf by the Baltic Exchange Chartering Committee to carry grain purchased by my Department when the positioning and terms are acceptable.
§ Mr. Willey
In view of the fact that at present some British boats are tied up, will the Minister keep this matter under very active review?
