HC Deb 23 April 1941 vol 371 cc179-80W
Sir W. Smithers

asked the Minister of Information whether he will give a list of the names of persons employed in the Ministry of Information and the British Broadcasting Corporation who have changed their names during the last five years; and will he give their original names and nationality?

Mr. Cooper

No, Sir, it would be contrary to the public interest to publish such details in war-time but I can assure the hon. Member that nobody is now employed in the Ministry or the B.B.C. whose antecedents give the slightest ground for doubt as to his or her loyalty to our cause.
