HC Deb 19 March 1917 vol 91 c1571W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that a meeting was arranged by the Scottish Co-operative Wholesale Society at Buchlyvie for 8th March, but, on Colonel Crawford's intimation that there must be no propaganda speeches on behalf of co-operation, the meeting was abandoned; and will he say under what Order in Council, or Section of the Defence of the Realm Act, or other statute, the military have authority to forbid propaganda of the principles of co-operation?


Inquiries are being made, and my hon. Friend will be informed of the result.
