HC Deb 09 May 1944 vol 399 c1698
32. Mr. Edmund Harvey

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Economic Warfare whether the additional vitamins, for which permission has been given by the Allied authorities, are now reaching the civilian sufferers in the countries occupied by Germany; and whether any addition can now be made to the range of vitamins which are authorised to be sent through the agency of the International Red Cross.

Mr. Foot

The first consignment of Vitamin D preparations, which is the gift of the British Red Cross Society and the Dominions Red Cross Societies, is now on its way to Geneva. As regards the second part of the Question I have nothing to add to my previous statements on this subject.

Mr. Harvey

Have any representations been received from any of the Allied Governments requesting further supplies of this nature?

Mr. Foot

I do not recall any such requests. Perhaps my hon. Friend will put the question down.
