HC Deb 20 December 1915 vol 77 cc53-4W

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he is aware of the anxiety which exists due to the continued large exports of food-stuffs to the Continent from the United States of America; and whether he can give an explanation of these increases?


The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative, and I may say that this anxiety is shared by His Majesty's Government. Every effort is being made, and will continue to be made, to restrain it within limits which can be reasonably thought to represent legitimate neutral demands
