§ 22. Mr. Garro Jones
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether French merchant ships, escorted or otherwise, are now being allowed to pass through the Suez Canal or the Straits of Gibraltar without search?
§ Sir V. Warrender
No French ships now pass through the Suez Canal. As regards traffic through the Straits of Gibraltar I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply given on 25th March to the hon. Member for East Wolverhampton (Mr. Mander) by my right hon. Friend the Minister of Economic Warfare.
