HC Deb 24 January 1951 vol 483 c28W
95. Mr. Pickthorn

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he will ascertain how far the Yugoslav Government have used materials provided by His Majesty's Government exclusively to prevent the weakening of the defences of Yugoslavia, to facilitate the export to this country of raw and semi-manufactured materials, and to facilitate work of British observers.

Mr. Younger

The Yugoslav Government are believed to have supplemented out of their own resources and in other countries the purchases of materials which they have made with the credits provided by His Majesty's Government. It is not known to what purposes all these materials have been put. Information of the kind referred to by the hon. Member, cannot be ascertained with any degree of accuracy, and I should not feel justified in asking the Yugoslav Government to devote time and labour to its compilation.
