HC Deb 27 January 1944 vol 396 c860
58. Mr. Driberg

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if the duplicate proxies recently sent from New York to London by diplomatic bag were accompanied by any covering letter or other communication from Mr. Serge Rubinstein or any other private citizen; and if such communication was passed through the censorship.

The Chancellor of the Exchequer (Sir John Anderson)

The answer to the first part of the Question is in the negative; the second part does not, therefore, arise.

Mr. Driberg

Can the right hon. Gentleman say whether this incident is likely to be a precedent?

Sir J. Anderson

I should say, certainly not.
