HC Deb 28 February 1940 vol 357 cc2104-5W
Mr. Ede

asked the Minister of Economic Warfare whether, in support of the Government's claim that the seaborne trade of Germany in neutral ships has been strangled, special instructions have been issued to all Government Departments that, in no circumstances, shall any neutral country import contraband goods to re-export to Germany?

Mr. Cross

I can assure the hon. Member that all Government Departments concerned are taking such action as is required of them in this connection, and that no special instructions need be issued to them.
