HC Deb 17 March 1925 vol 181 cc2056-7
32. Major Sir B. FALLE

asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office what salary is paid to the Professor of Publicity of the Navy, Army and Air Force Institutes?

The FINANCIAL SECRETARY to the WAR OFFICE (Captain Douglas King)

I would refer the hon. Member to the answer which my right hon. Friend gave to him in reply to a similar question on the 4th March.


Is my hon. and gallant Friend aware that the Government guarantee certain sums of money, and if they guarantee the money ought not they to know how it is spent?

Captain KING

We give certain sums of money with a definite object, but we have no financial liability, and therefore we have no control.


What does the Professor of Publicity do? Does he profess, or does he practise?

Captain KING

As a Department we have no knowledge of the existence of the gentleman.
