HC Deb 05 August 1943 vol 391 c2498W
Mr. De la Bère

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Economic Warfare whether the clarification of the faulty transmission received from the Neutral Commission in Greece in June has now been obtained; what are the details of the request; and whether a decision has been arrived at regarding the request from Greece for special milk foods which has been under consideration?

Mr. Foot

We have not yet received a reply to our request for clarification; the second part of the Question does not therefore arise. The request for special milk foods is still under consideration but, in the meantime, arrangements have been made to ship an equivalent quantity of pablum, a food suitable for consumption by children.
