§ 49. Mr. T. Johnston
asked the Prime Minister whether he has in contemplation the creation of a ministry or office of propaganda for the purpose of countering the propaganda of the agencies of the Axis Powers, and for the purpose of making effective appeal for a rational peace to the working classes in every country In Europe?
§ Mr. Johnston
Would the Prime Minister bear in mind when he makes his statement that very considerable apprehension exists in responsible quarters in 1299 the Press that a retired diplomat should be appointed to a post for which he has no previous experience or qualifications?
