HC Deb 19 August 1919 vol 119 cc2161-2W
Lieut.-Commander KEN WORTHY

asked the Home Secretary whether there is a Press propaganda or publicity bureau attached to or in connection with Scotland Yard; and, if so, what is the estimated annual cost of this department or organisation?


There is no publicity bureau at Scotland Yard similar to that attached to other Government Departments, but communications are occasionally made to the Press and requests for interviews made by newspaper representatives are sometimes granted. There being no separate department or organisation, no separate estimate of the cost can be given.
