HC Deb 07 February 1940 vol 357 cc186-7
4. Mr. Lambert

asked the Prime Minister whether he is aware that a report of the recent Secret Session, vouched for by its former London correspondent, appeared in the German newspaper "Hamburger Fremdenblatt"; and will he direct there shall be placed in the Library a translated text, so that Members may judge whether such report was surmise or based on genuine information?

Mr. Butler

Yes, Sir; and I am arranging for a translation to be placed in the Library.

Mr. Lambert

Is my right hon. Friend aware that this reported version of the Secret Session is getting into the neutral Press, and, therefore, if it is not accurate will he take steps to see that any wrong impression is removed?

Mr. Butler

Certainly, Sir.

Mr. Gallacher

Arising out of that answer, is the Under-Secretary aware that there are in this House friends, good friends, of Herr Hitler and the Nazis, who are keeping watch?

Mr. Butler

There are in this House friends of various different people.
