HC Deb 06 March 1941 vol 369 c1046W
Mr. R. Gibson

asked the Home Secretary whether he has considered the resolution of the Greenock Trades Council regarding the "Daily Worker," a copy of which was sent to him; and whether he can make a statement regarding the taking of legal proceedings in regard to the publication of that organ?

Mr. H. Morrison

I have received the resolution referred to. I explained fully in the course of the Debate on 28th January why procedure under Defence Regulation 2C with a view to prosecution in this case would have been ineffective and inappropriate and why the alternative procedure was adopted. The House approved my action by an overwhelming majority.
