§ Mr. J. Hall
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether he has any information concerning the merchant vessels now being built in Dutch and Danish shipyards for the Nazi Government; and whether he has reason to believe that the construction of these vessels is unimpeded?
Yes, Sir. The shipyards in question appear to be at work, but there is reason to suppose that work is handicapped by shortage of materials and difficulties of supply. The answer to the second part of the Question is in the negative.
