121. Mr. Osborne

asked the President of the Board of Trade what quantity of Everall railway bridging has been sent to Poland as a free gift from the British Government; from what areas was it sent; and on what dates.

Mr. Bottomley

11,000 tons. I understand from my right hon. Friend the Minister of Supply that the bridging came from surplus stocks held at an Army depot at Longmore, Hampshire, and was shipped between March and July, 1946.
