HC Deb 11 February 1915 vol 69 c713

asked the Prime Minister whether he will consider the possibility of issuing daily, or at other suitable intervals, a communication as to the doings of the British Expeditionary Force, similar to the French communiqué with regard to the whole of the Allied Forces in the West?

47. Mr. KING

asked the Prime Minister whether he has considered the possibility of issuing, in connection with the Commander-in-Chief at the front, a bulletin, either daily or at frequent intervals, similar to the communiqués issued in Paris, from which the public might be apprised of the progress and chief events in which our soldiers in France and Belgium are engaged; and whether he can make any statement on this subject?


Arrangements have been made, and will be put into force shortly, by which a communication will be sent twice a week by Sir John French giving a summary of the doings of the British Force, which will be published in the Press immediately on its receipt by the War Office.
