HC Deb 09 May 1940 vol 360 c1418W
Mr. C. Wilson

asked the Minister of Information what position Mr. Herbert Newte holds in the service of his Department; what are his duties and what salary he receives; and was it with his authority that he addressed a meeting at Brighton on 18th April?

Sir J. Reith

Mr. Horace Newte does not hold any position in the Ministry. He is one of many who volunteered to address meetings for which the Ministry might be asked to provide speakers, and he addressed the Preston Women's War Workers Guild on 18th April. He spoke as a private individual giving his own views.
