HC Deb 27 January 1943 vol 386 c482
25. Dr. Russell Thomas

asked the Minister of Information what progress he has now made towards the setting-up of an Allied Propaganda Council with the object of placing Allied propaganda on an uniform basis?

Mr. Thurtle

The hon. Member will recall my right hon. Friend's answer to his Question on 30th September last. Since then, relations with the information services of our Allies have been growing steadily closer, and frequent consultations have led to increased co-ordination.

Dr. Thomas

In view of recent happenings and of the talks between the Prime Minister and the President, does my hon. Friend not think the time has come to press this matter of an Allied Council, so that propaganda may be put on a uniform basis and used to the best advantage as a strategic weapon?

Mr. Thurtle

I can assure my hon. Friend that we are constantly endeavouring to improve the co-operation and collaboration between the Allied Governments.
