§ 27. Commander Locker -Lampson
asked the Home Secretary whether his attention has been drawn to the activities of the Sydmouth Douglas Social Credit Association, as these are calculated to impair the war effort; and what steps he is taking to deal with this association?
§ Mr. H. Morrison
My attention has been drawn to an anti-Semitic circular recently issued by the association referred to. It would, I think, on my present 1035 information, be exaggerating the influence of this obscure body to suggest that its activities could have any effect on the war effort, but I shall keep it under observation.
§ Commander Locker-Lampson
Are not the documents which I sent to the right hon. Gentleman anti-Government and pro-Hitler?
§ Mr. Morrison
It is not necessarily an offence for a document to be anti-Government. Otherwise, from time to time we should be in trouble with parts of the House of Commons. On the last point, I am not satisfied that it is necessarily so, but I will keep it under observation.
