The traffic between the United States and French North Africa has been suspended since the middle of February. But, as hon. Members will have seen in the Press, the United States Government have announced their intention to resume these shipments. The reasons for our concurrence in this policy remain the same as those stated by my right hon. Friend the Prime Minister on 2nd July of last year. As regards the last part of the Question, it is a condition of all such shipments that neither the goods themselves nor any similar goods shall be exported from North Africa.
