HC Deb 08 November 1944 vol 404 c1377W
Mr. Riley

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Economic Warfare whether any representations have been made to His Majesty's Government regarding the extreme shortage of food, clothing and medical supplies in Yugoslavia due to the war; and whether the Allied authorities are now making any shipments of supplies to meet the pressing needs of the civil population.

Mr. Foot

His Majesty's Government have received a number of representations on this subject, and have on several occasions permitted medical supplies to be sent to Yugoslavia while still in enemy occupation. As regards the general question of relief other than medical supplies to enemy-occupied areas I would refer my hon. Friend to the answer which I gave on 11th October to my hon. Friend the Member for Moss Side (Mr. W. R. Duckworth). Provision has been made for sending supplies to those parts of Yugoslavia which have been or are being liberated.
