HC Deb 05 August 1918 vol 109 c922
92. Captain CARR-GOMM

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War what is the result of his consultation with the military authorities in France in connection with a proposed arrangement with the French authorities for the circulation of a translation of the "Bulletin Quotidien du Presse Etrangère" in the Expeditionary Force?


I am informed that the "Bulletin Quotidien du Presse Etrangère," which is a review of the Foreign Press, is not circulated by the French authorities to the troops, who depend on news from trench magazines and ordinary daily papers. As regards the arrangements generally for the supply of newspapers to the British troops in France, I would refer my hon. and gallant Friend to my reply on Tuesday last to my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for East Antrim.


Is not that regarded as a publication confined to the staff?


The answer I have given covers all the points.
