HC Deb 15 February 1940 vol 357 cc954-5
47. Mr. Mander

asked the Prime Minister whether he will make it clear that the alleged report of the Secret Session of this House in the "Hamburger Fremdenblatt" is a complete fabrication and bears no relation to the facts; and that no disclosure has been made or printed in any journal?

The Prime Minister

The only report of the proceedings at the Secret Session of this House on 13th December is the one issued under the authority of Mr. Speaker. I am confident that there has been no disclosure of the proceedings of the House at the Secret Session, and it will be evident to any hon. Member who was present that the article referred to in the Question is not based on any authentic information as to what was then said but has been put together purely for propaganda purposes.

Mr. Davidson

Is it not the case that while the article in question was not accurate it was much more interesting than what actually occurred?
