HC Deb 24 July 1940 vol 363 c795
29. Commander King-Hall

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether the sea traffic between Metropolitan France and North Africa is subject to British naval examination and control?

Sir V. Warrender

Yes, Sir.

Mr. Shinwell

Have we any good reason to believe that German troops are being transported across the Mediterranean to North Africa?

Sir V. Warrender

That is another question, and perhaps the hon. Member will put it down.
