London, Aug. 13. Lord Robert Cecil,
Parliamentary L'nder-Secretary for
Foreign Affairs, in the course of a
forma! interview to-day defining the
British government's attitude in the ;
complicated cotton situation, mad'
this statement: "The Allies muit by
all lawful means prevent cotton
reaching their enemie?. It may be
considered necessary to make cotton :
At the same time, Lord Cecil
studiously refrained from any hint
that the commodity would be re?
moved from the free list at any speci?
fied date or that the government had
evolved any solution to meet the de- ;
marids of American cotton growers an?!
neutral consumers. He stated cx
plicitely, however, that if cotton were
made contraband Fngland would con?
sider ?he act legal and internationally
Lord Cecil's statement says in part: i
I.ffert on I'nited States Realised.
"The British government is fully
aware of the importance of cotton to
America. We fully understand that
upon a satisfactory adjustment of the
matter depends to a considerable de?
gree the welfare of nearly a quarter of ,
the population of th? United 81 ?
The welfare of the whole population of
Great Britain, however, also is in?
volved, as well as that of all Gnat !
Britain's allies-, for whom the British j
government is acting.
"The Allies must by all lawful mean? j
prevent cotton reaching their enemies.
At the same time, and equally im- |
portant, consideration must be given
to a great cotton producing country
like America and to consuming coun?
tries like Sweden, Norway, Denmark
"Cotton has not yet been declared
contraband, but under our blockade all
cotton which is believed to be destined
for Germany is stopped. It may be ,
considered necessary to make cotton
