HC Deb 11 December 1919 vol 122 c1609
40. Major GLYN

asked the Prime Minister whether there are considerable supplies of wheat and other cereals available for export from the area of operations of the anti-Bolshevik forces in Southern Russia; whether the difficulty of securing these stocks is the chaotic condition of internal communication in that area; whether British ships sent. to load these cargoes were forced to come away empty through the indifferent organisation of transport; whether the existing condition of Central Europe demands special efforts being made to transport wheat from Russian Black Sea ports up the Danube; and whether the British transportation mission with. General Denikin's headquarters, have put forward any scheme for making use of this large surplus stock of wheat?


The facts are, I believe, generally as stated in the question, but I cannot add anything to the replies given to my hon. Friend the Member for the Springburn Division of Glasgow on the 19th November and yesterday.
