HC Deb 19 December 1941 vol 376 cc2234-5
19. Mr. Wedgwood

asked the Minister of Information whether it is the policy of His Majesty's Government to encourage revolt in occupied Europe, irrespective of what form that revolt may take?

Mr. Thurtle

It would not be in the public interest to give the information which the right hon. Gentleman requires.

Mr. Wedgwood

Does my hon. Friend realise the value to our cause of every revolt against oppression, and in considering this question will he have regard to something beyond the immediate tragedy to the people concerned, and to the value of a good example?

Mr. Thurtle

With the utmost good will I must tell the right hon. Gentleman that I am unable to add anything to my original answer.
