HC Deb 13 March 1906 vol 153 c1120
* MR. LEHMANN (Leicestershire, Market Harborough)

I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury a Question, of which I have given him private notice—namely, whether his attention has been called to an advertisement appearing in the morning papers entitled "The Invasion of 1910," and whether the Government can take any steps or express any opinion which will discourage the publication of matter of this sort, calculated to prejudice our relations with other Powers.


I was greatly surprised to see the publication to which my hon. friend has referred appearing in some newspapers, even in newspapers of which but a few years ago we were all proud. I do not know what step the Government can take in the matter; I am afraid they can do nothing. We can safely leave it, I think, to be judged by the good sense and good taste of the British people. † See (4) Debates, clii., 1028.
