HC Deb 23 June 1942 vol 380 cc1790-1
12. Mr. Molson

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Economic Warfare, whether Rommel is receiving any supplies directly from Metropolitan France or from Tunisia; and whether French territorial waters are used by ships carrying supplies to him?

Mr. Foot

My information is that Rommel is not now receiving supplies from Metropolitan France, but consignments to Libya of products originating in French North Africa still continue. In regard to the second part of the Question, I have reason to believe that Axis vessels have on more than one occasion used French territorial waters, but it would not be in the public interest to give details.
