§ Viscount WOLMER
asked the President, of the Board of Education whether he circularised certain newspapers requesting them to refrain from commenting on the incident known as the Holmes Circular?
§ Mr. RUNCIMAN
I said there was no Circular on that subject. I communicated with some journalistic friends of mine, as I had a perfect right to do.
§ Mr. KELLAWAY
Does not the right hon. Gentleman think, in view of his experience of the way in which his permanent officials kept him in ignorance of what took place in regard to the Holmes Circular, they may have acted in a similar way in regard to this matter?
