    Background: BRITISH AND EUROPEAN SHIPOWNERS HAVE REACTED SHARPLY TO THE U.S.MARITIME COMMISSION'S DEMAND FOR FULL INFORMATION ON THEIR EARNINGS, AMOUNT OF FREE SPACE IN THEIR SHIPS AND COMMODITIES CARRIED.IF THE DEMAND IS NOT MET -- JANUARY 20 IS THE DEADLINE -- THE SHIPOWNERS FACE A DAILY FINE OF 100 DOLLARS.

    IN A MEMORANDUM PRESENTED AT A MEETING IN LONDON OF BRITISH AND EUROPEAN GOVERNMENT REPRESENTATIVES, THE SHIPPING LINES SAID THE REQUEST WAS "UNACCEPTABLE." MR.P.SPRIGGINS, CHAIRMAN OF THE NORTH ATLANTIC WEST BOUND FREIGHT ASSOCIATION, DESCRIBED THE U.S.ACTION AS "COMMERCIAL ESPIONAGE IN THE BIGGEST FORM."
    A SIMILAR DEMAND LAST YEAR TO THE CUNARD LINE, OWNERS OF THE "QUEEN MARY" AND "QUEEN ELIZABETH", BROUGHT A SHARP REACTION FROM THE BRITISH GOVERNMENT.THE MINISTRY OF TRANSPORT TOLD CUNARD NOT TO DISCLOSE ANY INFORMATION.

    THE CURRENT TWO-DAY MEETING, WHICH IS DUE TO END TONIGHT (FRIDAY) WITH A COMMUNIQUE, IS THE LATEST IN A SERIES HELD IN THE PAST TWO YEARS TO EVOLVE A COMMON EUROPEAN POLICY AGAINST FLAG DISCRIMINATION AND U.S.SHIPPING LEGISLATION.
