§ 15. Mr. R. Bell
asked the Secretary of State for War how many copies of Adolf Hitler's "Mein Kampf" recently printed in Arabic were found in the possession of Egyptian officers and other ranks during the recent operations under British command in the Middle East.
§ Mr. J. Amery
None were found by our forces. I understand, however, that the Israelis captured considerable numbers of "Mein Kampf" in Arabic during the Sinai operation. The book seems to have been in fairly general circulation amongst officers of the Egyptian Army.
§ Mr. Emrys Hughes
In view of the fact that the Germans are now in Cairo holding a trade exhibition there, and that we are out, does not the hon. Gentleman consider that "Mein Kampf" has won?
