HC Deb 31 July 1941 vol 373 c1557W
Major Markham

asked the Minister of Information whether he will invite the Russian ambassador, or persons suggested by him, to give a series of talks over the radio on political, economic and social conditions in Russia to-day?

Mr. Thurtle

Within the limits of the time available in the B.B.C. Home Service my right hon. Friend desires that full information should be given to the public about Russia as well as the many other countries associated with us directly and indirectly in the struggle against Germany. The Russian embassy is being kept informed of important items in our broadcast programmes in the same way as the representatives of other Governments.
