§ 68. Mr. W. A. Robinson
asked the Minister of Information whether he is aware that a senior official in the Postal and Telegraph Censorship Department has recently bought sterling in New York contrary to the nation's interest; what steps, legal, disciplinary, or otherwise, he proposes to take in regard to this matter and to prevent this civil servant and others from taking such action in future?
§ The Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Information (Mr. Thurtle)
No, Sir. But if my hon. Friend will furnish me with particulars I will look into the matter.
§ Mr. Robinson
Apart from imparting information does not the hon. Gentleman's Department try to collect it? I have the information which he ought to have and if I supply it, will he act on the lines suggested in my Question?
§ Mr. Thurtle
The hon. Gentleman will appreciate the fact that it is impossible for me to make an inquiry into any given matter until I know the matter to which he is referring.
