HC Deb 19 December 1945 vol 417 cc1491-2W
Mr. O'Brien

asked the Minister of War Transport how many ships are standing idle in the harbours of Copenhagen because of shortage of fuel; and, as the provision of fuel to those ships would mean that greater supplies of Danish bacon, butter and eggs would be made available to the workers of this country, what steps are to be taken by His Majesty's Government.

Mr. Barnes

I am informed that there are no ships standing idle in Copenhagen because of shortage of fuel. The second part of the Question, therefore, does not arise.
