HC Deb 14 November 1917 vol 99 cc409-10W

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Shipping Controller, with reference to the circumstances under which the cargo boats of the City of Dublin Steamship Company have been requisitioned by the Government and the management of them has been handed over to the representative of a rival steamship company, whether he will lay upon the Table a copy of the correspondence and other communications between the company and the Government Departments which preceded the requisition and the transfer mentioned?


As I have in previous replies fully explained to my hon. and learned Friend, the circumstances leading to the requisition by the Government of the cargo vessels of the City of Dublin Steam Packet Company, it does not appear to be necessary to lay upon the Table the communications referred to.
