HC Deb 09 November 1950 vol 480 c1116
46. Sir W. Smithers

asked the Prime Minister if he will set up a Royal Commission, presided over by an eminent King's Counsellor, at which evidence can be taken on oath to inquire into and report on the extent of Communist activities in this country.

The Prime Minister

No, Sir.

Sir W. Smithers

Is the Prime Minister aware that the country would be much happier if, instead of talking a lot of anti-Communist talk, he would do something? Is he also aware that, in my opinion, several places want screening—I think some of the Government Front Bench want screening?
