Is my right hon. Friend aware that these cigarettes cannot be described in Parliamentary language, and will he take steps to see that in future the soldiers are supplied with cigarettes of good quality?
I have answered the second part of the supplementary. As regards the first part, I am given to understand that the Eighth Army have had the cigarettes for a long time, and their discontent at what they were missing only became manifest when they had a small consignment of English cigarettes.
Is my right hon. Friend aware that for two or three years these V brand of cigarettes have been called "Spitfires" and that the soldiers do not wish to see or hear any more of them?
