HC Deb 28 April 1948 vol 450 cc369-70
47. Major Beamish

asked the Minister of Defence if he will give a list of military stores and equipment that have been stolen from military units in Palestine since 1st January, 1948; and what quantity of such stores and equipment has been recovered.

Mr. Alexander

This information is not available in London and I should be reluctant to impose the task of compiling any comprehensive list on the authorities in Palestine in present circumstances. If the hon. and gallant Member will be more specific as to the items in which he is interested, I should be willing to consider whether information about such items could be asked for without interfering with more important duties.
