HC Deb 19 December 1941 vol 376 cc2230-1
8. Mr. Stokes

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he will give the name of the military spokesman in Cairo?

Mr. Sandys

It is not the normal practice to disclose the names of individual members of military staffs. However, in view of the attention which this matter has received in the House I propose to make an exception in the present case. The two officers who have ably discharged the difficult duties of military spokesmen in Cairo are Brigadier E. J. Shearer and Colonel C. D. Quilliam.
