HC Deb 09 October 1945 vol 414 c11
78. Mr. Kirby

asked the Minister of Information if he will use every possible means to keep forces overseas constantly informed of the Government's policy and arrangements in regard to demobilisation.

The Minister of Information (Mr. E. J. Williams)

This is primarily the responsibility of the Service Departments, but I understand from them that meticulous care is taken to ensure that all official news on the subject reaches the Forces in overseas commands, both through Service newspapers and Service broadcasting stations.

Mr. Kirby

May I ask the Minister whether the Services are going to use the Education Officers for the dissemination of this information?

Mr. Williams

As far as the Army is concerned they are using Forcereuter News Service now and the Air Ministry propose to produce a publication to deal with matters of detail very shortly.
