HC Deb 24 July 1940 vol 363 c821W
Mr. Naylor

asked the Minister of Information whether he has any statement to make concerning the progress made in the formation of local information committees; and the extent to which such committees are now functioning?

Mr. Cooper

The number of information committees has risen from 44 on 1st June to 237. The extent to which these committees are functioning varies from case to case, largely in accordance with local need, but many are very active. A number of further committees are projected.
