HC Deb 20 December 1945 vol 417 cc1672-3W
Mr. Sparks

asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster if, consequent upon the disbandment of the H.G., he will cause a public appeal to be made for gifts of unwanted uniforms and articles of clothing for distressed persons in central Europe who are in danger of dying through cold and exposure; and whether he will indicate to what local addresses such gifts of clothing may be sent.

Mr. J. Hynd

I would refer my hon. Friend to the replies given on 13th and 19th Decemberby my right hon. Friend the Minister of State to my hon. Friends the Members for Ipswich (Mr. Stokes) and Norwood (Mr. Chamberlain) which were amplified in the reply given on 19th December to my hon. Friend the Member for Ipswich by the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs. As the receiving facilities of the voluntary societies are limited, it would not be desirable to make a public appeal at this stage.
