HC Deb 03 March 1947 vol 434 c5W
41. Mr. Spence

asked the Minister of Food what percentage of the annual prewar export of 1,000,000 tons of soya beans from Manchuria is now available to this country.

Dr. Edith Summerskill

We have been able lately to restart the purchase of Manchurian soya beans for shipment through Chinese ports, but I am not yet able to say how our imports are likely to compare with prewar quantities.
