39. Mr. Astor

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of War Transport whether he will publish, at an early date, a White Paper describing the work of the Middle East Supply Centre and of the technical authorities connected with it.

Mr. P. Thorneycroft

My Noble Friend will gladly consider in what form further information may best be given about the achievements of the Middle East Supply Centre.

Mr. Astor

In making this preparation, will my hon. Friend also cinsider maintaining the beneficient constructive activities of this centre and not allow them to lapse?

Mr. Thorneycroft

It may well be that the future of the Middle East Supply Centre will affect Departments dealing with a rather wider scope of policy than before.
