§ 46. Brigadier Low
asked the Minister of Defence how many lectures Professor Laski has given to Service audiences in the last six months; and upon what system lecturers are invited to ensure that all political points of view are equally placed before member of the Forces.
§ The Minister of Defence (Mr. A. V Alexander)
So far as I am aware, Professor Laski has given only one lecture to a Service audience in the last six months. Political lectures as such are not arranged for Service audiences and should a lecturer have to touch on any political subject or current national issue he is asked to avoid political bias and deal with the point in as detached and objective a manner as possible. The second part of the Question does not, therefore, arise.
§ Mr. Gallacher
Is the Minister aware that I and my colleague are at his service any time for giving lectures?
§ Mr. Alexander
I hope that the hon. Member will sometimes go to these lectures to receive education.
