HC Deb 28 February 1922 vol 151 c265
90. Lieut.-Colonel JAMES

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether his attention has been drawn to the sale in London of mouth organs of German origin, enclosed in a box marked Moëwenspuk, and embellished with a portrait of the commander of the raider "Moëwe," the German ensign, and ships being sunk without trace at sea; and whether he is able or willing to take the necessary steps to prevent the further importation of this and similar specimens of offensive German propaganda?

Sir P. LLOYD-GREAME (Secretary, Overseas Trade Department)

I have no information regarding the articles in question. But from the description given in my hon. and gallant Friend's question, I doubt whether there is any power to prevent the importation of these articles. If, however, my hon. and gallant Friend will send me one of these articles and the box in which it is sold, I will have the matter looked into.
