HC Deb 10 April 1946 vol 421 c318W
85. Sir P. Macdonald

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether in view of the fact that no dockets are now issued for linen to planters and other civilians returning to the Far East after recuperation in Great Britain, he will arrange with the British military authorities there to leave all surplus stocks in the Far East for purchase locally by these civilians on arrival.

Mr. George Hall:

The hon. and gallant Member's suggestion will be brought to the notice of the Governors and the officer in charge of the disposal of surplus stores in the territories concerned.
