HC Deb 10 June 1941 vol 372 c48W
Mr. Mander

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Dominion Affairs whether he is now able to give particulars of the proposed shipment of food from the United States of America to Eire?

Mr. Shakespeare

As has been announced in the Press, I understand that the Eire Government have accepted President Roosevelt's offer to permit the purchase of two freighters as well as a Red Cross gift of 500,000 dollars' worth of supplies. No details of these proposed shipments are available.
