HC Deb 30 July 1949 vol 467 c201W
Mr. Platts-Mills

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether, in order to save dollars, he will now endeavour to arrange for the allotment of Economic Co-operation Administration funds to be used to buy Canadian wheat.

Mr. Jay

The allotment of E.C.A. funds is the responsibility, subject to the provisions of the Foreign Assistance Act, 1948, of the Economic Co-operation Administration which is already aware of the special position of the United Kingdom in relation to Canadian wheat supplies.
