HC Deb 16 January 1945 vol 407 cc64-5W
Squadron-Leader Fleming

asked the Secretary of State for War what quantities of food and clothing were despatched to liberated Sicily and Italy up to the end of 1944.

Sir J. Grigg

Food and clothing were despatched to Italy during 1944 for the civil population under joint United States-United Kingdom arrangements. These imports form a part of the supplies imported by the Supreme Allied Commander for various military purposes, and I regret that it would not be in the public interest to give any figures.
