HC Deb 16 March 1944 vol 398 cc412-3W
Sir J. Lucas

asked the Secretary of State for War if he can yet announce any improvement in the proportion of arrival of cigarettes despatched to the troops in Italy in view of the many complaints that cigarettes despatched do not arrive.

Sir J. Grigg

I would refer my hon. and gallant Friend to the replies which I gave to my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for West Edinburgh (Lieut.-Commander Hutchison) on 7th March and which my right hon. Friend the Postmaster-General gave to the hon. and gallant Member for the City of Chester (Major Nield) on 8th March. At present I have nothing to add.
