§ 16. Mr. Vernon Bartlett
asked the Secretary of State for War whether applications for accreditation as war correspondents by French broadcasters and journalists have been granted.
§ Sir J. Grigg
Representatives of the Agence Francaise Independente have been accredited as war correspondents to British Forces in North Africa and the Middle East. I understand that applications have been received for other theatres and are being considered.
§ Mr. Bartlett
Is it a fact that applications which have been received for French correspondents to go to their own country when the invading armies go there have not yet been accepted?
§ Mr. Shinwell
In view of the active participation of the French Forces in the war, can we be assured that no restriction will be imposed on any of these journalists?
