Nicholas Watt and Michael White, 'Unity at UN over Iraq relief package', The Guardian, 29 March 2003. This article paraphrases and quotes 'the prime minister's official spokesman' as follows: 'the oil-for-food programme was abused by the Iraqi regime by, for example, using it to "import thousands of chewing gum machines"'.
