§ 7. Mr. ANDERSON
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether Mr. Zangwill's play, "The Melting Pot," has been withdrawn from performance at Edinburgh owing to the intervention of the Foreign Office; and on what ground this action has been taken?
§ The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for FOREIGN AFFAIRS (Lord Robert Cecil)
The performance of the play in question was not prohibited, but, at the request of the Foreign Office, it was suggested informally through the Scottish Office to the producers of the play that, in present circumstances, they should replace it by another play. This they were good enough to do.
