HC Deb 07 February 1940 vol 357 c236W
Mr. Craven-Ellis

asked the Minister of Information whether he is satisfied with the quantity of official British publications, whether in the English language or in translation, distributed abroad on the initiative of his Department?

Sir J. Reith

Results so far may, I think, be regarded as fairly satisfactory. Over 75,000 copies of seven official documents have been distributed in English. Six of them have already been translated into 16 languages, some editions selling up to 300,000 copies.
