HC Deb 30 January 1941 vol 368 c714W
Mr. Ness Edwards

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he has considered the resolution passed by the Caerphilly Urban District Council condemning the attitude of the British Government in assenting to the supply of oil, petrol and munitions to Japan, an associate of the Axis Powers; and what answer he has returned thereto?

Mr. Butler

As regards petroleum products, the position remains as explained in the reply returned to the hon. Member for Wolverhampton, East (Mr. Mander) on 27th November. As regards munitions, all exports of arms, ammunition and aircraft are subject to licence and no license have been issued for such exports to Japan during the past two years.
