HC Deb 18 November 1941 vol 376 c187W
Sir W. Smithers

asked the Home Secretary whether he will take steps to prevent existing organisations being used wittingly, or unwittingly, by persons who are working against the interests of national security?

Mr. H. Morrison

I do not know to what activities or organisations my hon. Friend is referring, but I should of course be prepared to make use of my powers under Defence Regulations against any persons engaged in activities directed against the public safety or the defence of the realm.
