HC Deb 17 May 1934 vol 289 cc1940-1

asked the Attorney-General if his attention has been drawn to the account of an alleged conversation on State affairs beween His Majesty The King and the Prime Minister in a book entitled "Special Correspondence"; and what action he proposes to take to prevent the further publication of the alleged conversation?

The SOLICITOR - GENERAL (Sir Donald Somervell)

My right hon. and learned Friend has read the passage to which I understand my hon. Friend refers : the alleged conversation is the author's account of what he imagines took place. It is not proposed to take any action.


Does the hon. and learned Gentleman think it desirable that people should write books professing to know what happens between His Majesty and his advisers?
