HC Deb 31 July 1940 vol 363 c1221
22. Major Sir Jocelyn Lucas

asked the Postmaster-General whether he will make public the fact that telegraphic communication is open between unoccupied France and this country, but that persons inquiring for relatives should pay the reply, owing to many people being without funds?

The Postmaster-General (Mr. W. S. Morrison)
