HC Deb 13 November 1917 vol 99 cc211-2
47. Mr. T. WILSON

asked the Prime Minister whether the small co-ordinating Committee just appointed by the Government to regulate the holding of public meetings on behaf of various war aims also co-ordinates all forms of publicity, including the dissemination of news and literature; and, if not, whether he will arrange for such a body to be called into existence?


The answer to the first part of the question is in the negative. The hon. Member's suggestion is being considered.

48. Mr. T. WILSON

asked the Prime Minister how many different Departments or Establishments are responsible for official publishing; and whether, over all, there is any one supreme authority?


If the question refers to the publication of news by Departments, the various Departments of the Government are responsible for communicating to the Press such matters as come within their respective spheres of activity.
