HC Deb 02 April 1946 vol 421 cc1103-4
60. Mr. Vane

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will consider the possibility of barter by which this country would dispose of surplus military equipment of modern pattern to France in exchange for French wine to be shipped to this country.

Mr. H. Morrison

No, Sir. We have already been selling military equipment to France and buying French wine within the framework of the Anglo-French Financial Agreement.
