HC Deb 27 February 1940 vol 357 c1868
11. Mr. Mander

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether purchases of American tobacco have been resumed on a substantial scale; whether the resumption of purchases has been agreed upon by His Majesty's Government; and whether he will state the reasons for which dollar resources are used for such purchases?

Sir A. Duncan

The answer to the first part of the Question is in the negative and the second part, therefore, does not arise.
