§ 30. Mr. Blackburn
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what action he has taken, in view of the economic blockade of Yugoslavia established by the Communist-controlled neighbours of Yugoslavia, to ensure that the fullest com- 194 mercial relations are established between this country and Yugoslavia.
§ Mr. Blackburn
While being in the fortunate position of being able, for once, to agree with both Marshal Tito and Marshal Stalin in what they say about each other, may I ask my right hon. Friend whether he will make it perfectly clear as a matter of the policy of the Government that we will not allow any country to be overcome by economic strangulation in a "cold war"?
§ Major Beamish
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that the Yugoslav Government are still giving some assistance to Communist rebels in Greece, and should not the establishment of fuller commercial relations be made dependent upon the complete closing of the Yugoslav-Greek frontier?
§ Mr. M. Philips Price
Is it not a fact that Yugoslavia is able to supply this country with a considerable amount of timber, of which we are in considerable need?
§ Mr. Pickthorn
Is a running account kept of the effect of the agreement made last December; and can the right hon. Gentleman tell us how many of this £30 million worth have been (a) exported and (b) imported up to date?
