HC Deb 07 November 1944 vol 404 c1280W
Lieut.-Commander Tufnell

asked the Secretary of State for War why no foodstuffs can be sent to members of the Forces; and what steps are taken to see that this regulation is not infringed.

Sir J. Grigg

I would refer my hon. and gallant Friend to the reply I gave the hon. and gallant Member for the City of Chester (Major Nield) on 28th July. All parcels despatched to members of H.M. Forces overseas must have on the outside a signed declaration showing what they contain. The accepting officer of the Post Office satisfies himself from these lists that they contain no prohibited articles.
