HC Deb 02 March 1944 vol 397 cc1571-2
45. Mr. Turton

asked the Prime Minister whether the decision of the Secretary of State for War not to accredit to the forces now preparing for overseas a correspondent from the "Daily Worker" applies equally to the R.N. and R.A.F.

The Prime Minister (Mr. Churchill)


Mr. Thorne

Congratulations upon the right hon. Gentleman's Freedom of Aldershot.

The Prime Minister

I thought my hon. Friend might be referring to Bury St. Edmunds.

The decision to which my hon. Friend refers in this Question was not a decision of the Secretary of State for War, but a decision of His Majesty's Government. The ruling covers all three Services, and there is no intention of changing it.
