HC Deb 15 December 1943 vol 395 cc1547-8
64. Mr. Ellis Smith

asked the Minister of Information what steps have been or are to be taken to co-ordinate our propaganda with that of the U.S.S.R.?

Mr. Thurtle

The responsible officers of the respective departments in London and Moscow maintain contact over this as over other important aspects of the common war effort.

Mr. Smith

As a result of the report given yesterday by the Foreign Secretary, does not my hon. Friend agree that there now appears to be complete co-ordination on the military field, and if the Ministry of Information takes similar action with a view to bringing about complete co-ordination in regard to propaganda, it would wield a powerful influence in our war effort?

Mr. Thurtle

We are certainly doing everything we can in conjunction with our opposite numbers in Russia to promote the sort of propaganda my hon. Friend wants.
