HC Deb 13 April 1943 vol 388 cc1074-5W
Mr. Hewlett

asked the Secretary of State for War whether there is sufficient blood available for transfusion in all overseas theatres of war?

Sir J. Grigg

Yes, Sir. Every overseas theatre is supplied from this country with a stock of preserved blood substitute. These stocks are if necessary supplemented by whole blood obtained locally. According to reports from the Middle East and North Africa the present arrangements are entirely satisfactory.
