HC Deb 17 July 1940 vol 363 cc225-6W
Sir P. Hannon

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will give the names of the Welsh vernacular newspapers which refused to print the war loan advertisement; whether any reasons were given; and what action has or is being taken?

Captain Crookshank

The only case of which I am aware is that of "Y Goleaud," the weekly organ of the Calvinistic Methodist or Presbyterian Church of Wales. After publishing an advertise- ment in connection with war savings for some time, the paper asked to be excused. I do not propose to intervene.
