HC Deb 28 May 1941 vol 371 c1837
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.
