Mr. Bracken

The hon. Member will recall that Sir Walter Monckton, while Director General of the Ministry of Information, made a special visit to Russia for this purpose. Information on policy and propaganda technique was exchanged with the Soviet Information Bureau and arrangements were made for closer cooperation through exchange of information and material.
