HC Deb 27 March 1941 vol 370 cc725-6W
Mr. Thorne

asked the Secretary for Petroleum whether he has any information as to whether the oil-producing wells in Rumania which are owned by the British and French companies are now being worked, and the amount of oil that is being exported?

Mr. Lloyd

According to my information, the oil-wells in Rumania owned by British and French interests are still being worked. The publication of figures of Rumanian oil exports has ceased since the German occupation of that country.
