§ 16. Mr. Frederick Gough
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if, in view of the necessity to curtail Government expenditure, particularly of dollars, he will make inquiries as to what economies can be effected in the Information Services at the British Embassy in Washington.
§ Mr. C. R. Attlee
May I ask the right hon. Gentleman to have regard to the very great value of these services in getting the British point of view put across in America, and will he oppose any shortsighted cutting down of essential services?
