HC Deb 10 July 1941 vol 373 cc329-30W
Sir A. Maitland

asked the Minister of Information whether he will take steps to inform the public of this and other countries, by the immediate publication in the Press and otherwise, of a graphic recital portraying the achievements during recent weeks of the Royal Air Force?

Mr. Nicolson

The second phase of the air battles in western Europe is still developing and my right hon. Friend does not consider the present moment opportune for the publication of any narrative on the lines of the "Battle of Britain." Such a narrative might be valuable at some later date. Meanwhile the public at home and abroad are given, in news bulletins and feature articles, full information regarding the exploits of the R.A.F.
