§ 18. Mr. CROWDER (for Lieut.-Colonel SANDEMAN ALLEN)
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty whether, in view of the refusal by the Birkenhead Town Council of permission to exhibit recruiting posters, he has an alternative method of calling for recruits?
The exhibition of posters is a valuable method of bringing to notice the advantages of naval service and cannot well be spared. But the Admiralty rely on other methods also, including advertisements in newspapers and issues of recruiting pamphlets.
§ Mr. GEORGE GRIFFITHS
Will the hon. Gentleman see that when these leaflets are issued there is printed at the bottom "We supply margarine"?
§ Sir W. BRASS
Can my hon. Friend say whether it is a fact that the local authorities can refuse these leaflets?
§ Mr. THURTLE
Will the Parliamentary Secretary consider having 1685 posters exhibited in night clubs and other places for the idle young men of the West End?
