HC Deb 26 June 1940 vol 362 c459W
Captain Elliston

asked the Home Secretary whether the police inform Press representatives of raids or investigations under the Defence of the Realm Act; and whether they secure equal publicity for the exoneration of suspected persons who are found to have been wrongfully exposed to annoyance and indignity?

Sir J. Anderson

No, Sir. It would be most improper for the police to give to the Press any information of any kind relating to such inquiries conducted by them.
