asked the Secretary of State for War how it is proposed to supply the large imports of grain needed in Libya owing to recent drought there.

Apart from a certain amount of maize, which it is hoped may be obtained from the Middle East through commercial channels, my right hon. Friend the Minister of Food is endeavouring to make arrangements to supply the grain needed in Libya. As regards probable sources of supply, I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply I gave on 20th May to the hon. and gallant Member for Hythe (Brigadier Mackeson), to which I cannot at present add.
