HC Deb 20 April 1939 vol 346 cc502-3
61. Mr. V. Adams

asked the Home Secretary whether he is aware of the existence of a body calling itself the Anglo-German Fellowship; and whether he is satisfied that its activities do not result in injury to our national interests?

Sir S. Hoare

This organisation is, I understand, run by British subjects for the purpose of promoting better understanding between British subjects and Germans, and there will, I am sure, be general agreement that the promotion of better relations between the peoples of the two countries is not contrary to but advantageous to the national interests of both.

Mr. Adams

In present circumstances, how can this body fail to serve as a channel for Nazi propaganda?
