  • Description

    Government and shipping officials met in London this morning (Friday) to discuss the United States demand for new trans-Atlantic freight contracts. The dispute has arisen after a message from the United States Maritime Commission delivered to British shipowners on Wednesday telling them to cancel their existing trans-Atlantic freight contracts. Shipowners described the United States demands as "gross interference."
    After this morning's meeting, a Chairman of one of the shipping associations, Mr. Victor Sprigings was interviewed:
    (Meanwhile, speaking at a Press Conference today Mr. Dean Rusk, the American Secretary of State, said his Government would get in touch with the countries involved in the dispute to try to work out a solution. He said the dispute about the regulations was "not something that can be dismissed with a slogan about sovereignty, or interference - this is a highly technical matter". The new regulations officially come into force at midnight tonight.)
