HC Deb 10 November 1943 vol 393 c1173W
Sir L. Lyle

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of War Transport whether, as the Portuguese steamer "Padua," when sunk off Marseilles was carrying parcels for our prisoners of war, he will, if possible, replace this vessel in view of its humanitarian effort?

Mr. Noel-Baker

Tonnage has already been chartered to replace the "Padua."
