§ Brigadier-General CROFT
asked the Secretary of State for War whether his attention has been called to the fact that a poster was issued at the parish council elections of Horbling, in Lincolnshire, with the words, "Do not vote for the man who got all the boys into the Army"; whether he is aware that the gentleman referred to in this poster was a candidate for election who had given his services as a recruiting officer in an honorary capacity; and what steps he intends to take to proceed against the publisher under Regulation 27 of the Defence of the Realm Act, in order to prevent further effort of this description to stop recruiting for His Majesty's Army?
§ Mr. CHURCHILL
I am investigating this matter, and will let my hon. and gallant Friend know the result in due course.
