HC Deb 06 March 1946 vol 420 c65W
60. Mr. Touche

asked the Minister of Food if he is aware that the first cargo of Canary bananas arriving in London on the s.s. "Banaderos" is being discharged for reshipment to Eire; and why licences were refused for the import of any of this cargo into this country.

Dr. Summerskill

I fear the hon. Member has been misinformed. The s.s. "Banaderos" is the second steamer bringing Canary Island bananas and her entire cargo of bananas will be consumed in this country.
