Only information State Department has on subject is that British Embassy has instructed its consular officers that the British Government have made an agreement with the Swedish Cotton Spinners Association allowing that body to import 10,000 bales of cotton a month, that association having stated that this quantity represents the maximum requirements of Sweden for home consumption, and that it is probable that all cotton shipped for Sweden will be held up unless it is consigned to the Swedish Cotton Spinners Association whose assent to such consignments must first be obtained.
