HC Deb 07 March 1945 vol 408 c2020
52. Mrs. Cazalet Keir

asked the Minister of Food whether, in view of the increased weight of one pound allowed for letter packets sent to France and four pounds to Belgium, he will permit these packets to include food.

57. Miss Rathbone

asked the Minister of Food whether permission can be given for packages of food and medical necessaries to be sent to France or any other liberated territory, through some appropriate organisation in this country, at least where evidence is furnished that the designated recipients urgently need such gifts for medical reasons.

Colonel Llewellin

The suggestions made by my hon. Friends, and other matters affecting supplies for civilians in liberated territories in Europe, are being carefully considered. I am not at present in a position to make any statement on the subject, but I hope that it will be possible for such a statement to be made shortly.
