HC Deb 19 November 1940 vol 365 c1864W
Mr. Silkin

asked the Minister of Economic Warfare, whether he is aware that shipments of nickel are reaching Germany from Finland; and what action he is taking to prevent this?

Mr. Foot

My right hon. Friend is keeping under careful observation the situation regarding the nickel mine near Petsamo. This is producing no ore at the present time. My right hon. Friend has no reason to believe that any shipments of nickel have reached or are reaching Germany from Finland. If, however, my hon. Friend has any information to the contrary, perhaps he will be good enough to communicate with me.
