§ 50. Mr. SNOWDEN
asked the Prime Minister if Lord Northcliffe has been sent by the Government on a foreign mission and, if so, what is the nature of the mission; whether Lord Northcliffe has been appointed a member of the Government or the Diplomatic service; and, if not, why he has been selected to carry out an official mission?
§ Mr. SNOWDEN
In view of the importance of the question, why is the Minister not present who can reply to it?
§ Mr. PRINGLE
Are we to understand now that Lord Northcliffe is a representative of the Government, that the papers which he controls will be the official organs of the Government?
§ Sir G. CAVE
The hon. Member (Mr. Snowden) does not know that my right hon. Friend the Leader of the House is indisposed.
