HC Deb 15 November 1939 vol 353 cc685-6
4. Mr. Dobbie

asked the Prime Minister whether he is now in a position to report to the House on the result of his investigation in regard to the distribution of leaflets by German agents in neutral countries, relative to the alleged supply of gas-shells to Poland by the British Government?

Mr. Butler

Information has reached His Majesty's Government that these leaflets have been widely distributed in various neutral countries. Steps have been taken to give the widest possible publicity in foreign countries to official statements refuting the German allegations.
