HC Deb 06 November 1929 vol 231 c1079W

asked the Secretary of State for War whether his attention has been called to, a pamphlet recently published and circulated amongst members of the Forces, stating that war preparations are being made against the Russian Soviet; and whether, seeing that certain criminal proceedings were taken on 29th September against two persons who circulated such pamphlets to certain soldiers, he has any information as to the publishers of the pamphlets and the organisation who paid for them?


The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. With regard to the second part, the publishers are stated on the pamphlets to be the Communist Party of Great Britain. I have no information as to who paid for the publication.
