HC Deb 29 February 1944 vol 397 cc1232-3
22. Mr. Pritt

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that the Union of State Servants is issuing its circulars on official stationery and distributing them in War Office envelopes through the War Office post; whether similar facilities are given to any other trade unions; and if not, why this organisation is given preferential treatment.

Sir J. Griģģ

I am at present investigating a report of the alleged misuse by an official of the Union of State Servants of an official envelope and the War Office postal facilities for the transmission of correspondence and literature. I am not aware of any other case of the alleged misuse of official stationery by this organisation. The use of official stationery for other than official purposes is strictly forbidden.

Mr. Pritt

Has the right hon. Gentleman received a report and will he look into it, that circulars are actually printed on paper with the Stationery Office watermark?

Sir J. Griģģ

I am investigating the report mentioned in the Question, but I have not heard of any other cases. If the hon. and learned Gentleman has, perhaps he will let me have particulars.
