HC Deb 07 June 1945 vol 411 cc1061-2
50. Petty-Officer Alan Herbert

asked the Prime Minister whether, before the Dissolution of Parliament, he will arrange for a high officer from military government in North-West Germany to attend this House and give an account to Members of the fine work done and being done by our Forces in those regions.

The Prime Minister

While thanking my hon. and gallant Friend for his appreciation of the work being done by the military government in Germany, I regret that it will not be possible to adopt his suggestion.

Petty-Officer Herbert

Would it be possible to issue a report in the form of a White Paper, as the public are very anxious to know what is being done?

The Prime Minister

We were for a very long time short of white paper, and now we are very short of time.
