§ Mr. Webb
Yes. I am aware of this situation. I can—and will—prosecute people in this country who offend against the Food Rationing Regulations by purchasing these food parcels, but I have no power to prevent traders in Gibraltar from encouraging them to do so. As my hon. Friend the Parliamentary Secretary to the Board of Trade explained yesterday, however, the Colonial Office have sought the assistance of the Governor of Gibraltar in bringing this ramp to an end.
