asked the Minister of Economic Warfare why 500 tons of soap were allowed to be sold, in December, to Spain by British firms at a time when shortage of soap here was about to make rationing necessary?
I have been asked to reply. No licences have been granted for exports of soap to Spain for some months, but if my hon. Friend has any information he would like me to consider I will be glad to do so if he will send me particulars.
Is the right hon. and gallant Gentleman aware of the reports in the American Press of a quantity of soap being sent from this country to Spain?
As I have said, no licences have been issued for the export of soap to Spain for several months.
