HC Deb 27 June 1940 vol 362 c592
34. Mr. Hannah

asked the Home Secretary whether, in view of the editorial attacks made in the periodical, "Voice of Spain," upon this country's war effort and in view of its hostility to our new ambassador to Spain, he will suppress this publication forthwith?

Sir J. Anderson

I have been in consultation on this subject with my right hon. Friend the Minister of Information, and I am communicating to my hon. Friend the result of that consultation.

Miss Rathbone

Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that "Voice of Spain" makes a valuable contribution to the nation's war effort by enabling the public to know of German and Italian propaganda in Spain?

Mr. Shinwell

Could an arrangement be made so that the result of the consultation to which the right hon. Gentleman referred could be made available to hon. Members?

Sir J. Anderson

I have said so.
