§ 17. Mr. HOUSTON
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether at his invitation the editors of the newspaper Press met him at the Admiralty on 27th April, and received from him at some length confidential information regarding mercantile tonnage and submarine operations?
§ Mr. HOUSTON
Can my right hon. Friend see his way to extend to Members of this House the same courtesy as is shown to members of the Press?
I do not know whether this House of 670 Members would be under any circumstances regarded as precisely in the same category as a meeting of editors of newspapers.
I am not aware of the circumstances to which my hon. Friend refers. Perhaps, if he would let me know the facts, I could give him an answer.
