HC Deb 21 January 1941 vol 368 cc50-1W
Colonel Mitchell

asked the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies whether steps are being taken to increase imports of citrus fruits from the West Indies to replace supplies from other countries which are no longer obtainable?

Mr. George Hall

The only citrus fruit which the Ministry of Food is now importing is oranges, and the Ministry has made arrangements to purchase from the British West Indies all available supplies of this fruit.
