§ 49. Commander Douglas Marshall
asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster whether the Control Commission is utilising the processed fish surplus in Norway to relieve the food difficulties in Western Europe.
§ The Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster (Mr. John Hynd)
Yes, Sir. Negotiations are proceeding with the Norwegian authorities for the purchase of surplus processed fish for the civilian population of the British Zone in Germany.
§ Commander Marshall
Is the Minister aware that, owing to the extreme food shortage in Western Europe, we want action? Consideration is not sufficient where people are starving.
§ Mr. Stokes
Has this decision been taken with the full approval of the Allied Food Control Board in America?
