Since this Question was put down, hon. Members will have seen the welcome news that the Turkish Government has prohibited the export of chrome ore to the Axis. Owing to difficulties of transport it is not possible to say what quantity is at this moment being exported to the United Nations. As regards the figures of past years, I will, with my hon. Friend's permission, circulate them in the OFFICIAL REPORT.
While congratulating the Government upon their success in this matter, may I ask the hon. Gentleman whether he will bring to the attention of our oldest Ally this example of the help which can be given by a neutral nation?
