HC Deb 28 February 1940 vol 357 c2105W
Colonel Wedgwood

asked the Minister of Economic Warfare whether the impending Anglo-Norwegian Trade Agreement will enable Norway, in any circumstances, to import from overseas for re-export to Germany; and, in view of the fact that such an agreement would be contrary to the Government's declared blockade policy, will the House be given an opportunity for debating the matter before this agreement is approved?

Mr. Cross

I would refer the right hon. Gentleman to my reply to a similar Question asked by the hon. Member for Romford (Mr. Parker) on 20th February in which I indicated that it would not be in the public interest to give any information about individual war trade agreements. I would also refer the right hon. Gentleman to the general statement on war trade agreements which I made to the House yesterday.
