HC Deb 28 November 1945 vol 416 cc1493-4W
Mr. Renton

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies which food and materials arc at present being rationed in Palestine; and how long such rationing is likely to continue.

Mr. George Hall

I regret that the information available here is not sufficiently up to date to enable me to answer the first part of the Question. I have therefore requested the High Commissioner for Palestine to furnish me with the necessary details for communication to the hon. and gallant Member. As to the period during which rationing of food and materials is likely to continue, I fear that no firm indication can be given, as this will depend largely on the world supply position.
