§ 49. Mr. Bellenger
asked the Prime Minister how many despatches have 29 been received during the war from Commanders-in-Chief, Forces serving overseas; and how many have so far been published?
§ Mr. Bellenger
Does the Prime Minister recollect that during the last war 15 despatches were received from the Army then on the Western Front and were published within a very short time of their receipt by the Government? Why is this safety curtain dropped between our Commanders in the field and the general public?
