§ 7. Mr. Sorensen
asked the Prime Minister whether, in the distribution of propaganda and information to the German people by aeroplane, broadcasting and other means, he has included, and will include, statements concerning the desirable principles of peace and international reconstruction as advocated by the Labour party?
§ Mr. Butler
Full prominence is being given in the B.B.C. German programmes to the views of the Labour party, including those expressed in the recent manifesto. The right hon. Gentleman the Leader of the Opposition and other hon. Members opposite have broadcast to Germany, and arrangements are now in progress for a series of broadcasts by Trades Union Council leaders. The sense of the Labour manifesto is, also, being conveyed to Germany by other means at our disposal.
§ Mr, Sorensen
Do I take it that the right hon. Gentleman and his Government agree that it is highly desirable that Socialists and others in Germany should be fully acquainted with the proposals of the Labour party with regard to peace?
