HC Deb 04 March 1930 vol 236 c266W

asked the Secretary to the Overseas Trade Department if he is aware that the British Industries Fair recently held at Olympia was used for party political purposes by the "Overseas Daily Mail," having on their stand a card bearing the words, "Enrol here for the United Empire Party," and that placed in front of this card was a book of enrolment forms which visitors were asked to complete; and what action he proposes to take?


Yes, Sir; immediately the matter was brought to the notice of the responsible officers, the necessary steps were taken for the withdrawal of the card and forms.
