asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs why no licence is obtainable from the British authorities in Germany to import a first consignment of 250,000 herring, which is ready to be shipped from Holland to the industrial areas in the British zone of Germany, the cost of the consignment being borne by charitable organisations and private persons in the U.S.A.; and whether he will review this decision.
§ Mr. Mayhew
In spite of inquiries which have been made in Germany I have been unable to trace the offer referred to. If my hon. Friend will let me have any further information in her possession, in particular to whom the offer was made, 323W I shall be glad to have further inquiries made and to communicate with my hon. Friend.
