§ 48. Earl WINTERTON
asked if the British Embassy in Washington propose to issue any statement through the Press in the United States to deal with the assertions being publicly made by Mr. Bernard Shaw as to British responsibility for the origin of the War?
The answer is in the negative. But Professor Oman's Memorandum, which has been compiled from official documents, and furnishes a correct account of the causes leading up to the War, is available in the United States, and would appear to furnish a sufficient reply to the statements made by Mr. Shaw.
§ Earl WINTERTON
If I send the hon. Member a copy of the Foreign Press Supplement issued by the War Office, in which he will see the very serious and misleading statements made by Mr. Bernard Shaw, will he take immediate steps to have them counteracted?
We have a whole batch of Shavian literature at the War Office and I shall be glad to add this to it.
