§ 9. Captain Ramsay
asked the Prime Minister whether his attention has been drawn to the official statement recently issued by M. Stalin to the effect that revolutionary propaganda in foreign countries is to be extended and intensified; and whether His Majesty's Government propose to make any representations to the Government of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics on the subject?
§ Mr. Butler
I presume that my hon. and gallant Friend refers to the "open letter" by M. Stalin recently published in the Soviet Press. That document, however, contains no specific mention of an intensification of propaganda in foreign countries. The second part of the question, therefore, does not arise.
Is it not a fact that the policy of Russia is to carry out world-wide revolution, and that propaganda is a very necessary part of it?
