HC Deb 12 November 1952 vol 507 c925
35. Mr. Emrys Hughes

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he will place in the Library photographs illustrating the devastation caused by the methods of modern war in Korea.

Mr. Nutting

No. Sir.

Mr. Hughes

Will not the hon. Gentleman follow the precedent of the Colonial Secretary, who has exhibited in the Library photographs of what was done by the Mau Mau in Africa? Are not the atrocities in Korea infinitely worse than the Mau Mau atrocities in Africa?

Mr. Nutting

I do not see that any useful purpose would be served by agreeing to this suggestion. I do not expect the Library of the House of Commons to be used as an exhibition room for photographs of this kind.

Captain Pilkington

Would my hon. Friend invite the hon. Member for South Ayrshire (Mr. Emrys Hughes) to use his influence to have such photographs displayed in the libraries of the aggressor nations?
