§ 6. Mr. GODFREY LOCKER-LAMPSON
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs when he expects to be in a position to inform this House of the result of the inquiry being instituted by the Government into Soviet propaganda?
Mr. A. HENDERSON
I am not yet in a position to say when the investigations now proceeding are likely to be terminated. But, as I informed the House on 26th May, His Majesty's Government will decide on the basis of the inquiries what action, if any, will be appropriate.
§ Mr. LOCKER-LAMPSON
Can the right hon. Gentleman say if we shall have some statement from the Government on the subject before the House rises?
No, I cannot. I must allow the Government to decide what action is going to be taken on the information that is supplied after the inquiry.
§ Mr. MARJORIBANKS
Has the right hon. Gentleman considered the wide powers of inquiry given by the Official Secrets Act in reference to this question?
