HC Deb 07 November 1939 vol 353 cc30-1
62. Mr. Bartlett

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether he is aware of the growing tendency among Government Departments to issue public notices of importance under the guise of news matter; and will he take steps to check a tendency which is detrimental to the Press at a time when general trade restrictions have reduced advertising to a minimum?

Captain Crookshank

No, Sir; but if the hon. Member has any particular case in mind, perhaps he will be good enough to communicate with the Department concerned.
