§ 46. Earl WINTERTON
asked the First Lord of the Treasury, if his attention has been called to the fact that a person recently addressed a letter to the hon. Member for Mansfield in which he stated that he was empowered to make confidential inquiries about land on behalf of the Prime Minister and the Chancellor of the Exchequer; and if this person has any authority from him for making such a statement?
§ The PRIME MINISTER
I have no knowledge of the communication referred to. I have given no such authority.
§ Earl WINTERTON
Will the right hon. Gentleman, to uphold the dignity of his office, take steps to have this person, who made so insolent and fraudulent a use of his name, prosecuted?
