HC Deb 06 February 1945 vol 407 c1928W
Colonel Lyons

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he can make any statement on the food situation in the liberated part of Italy.

Sir J. Grigg

I would refer my hon. and gallant Friend to the reply I gave my hon Friend the Member for East Birkenhead (Mr. G. White) on 16th January. In addition to the supplies imported, every effort has been made to assist and encourage the Italian Government in the re-establishment of agriculture and fisheries, and in spite of the disruption of communications the general position is improving.
