HC Deb 04 March 1942 vol 378 c665W
Earl Winterton

asked the Minister of Information why no reply has been sent by his Department to a protest by Mr. C. H. Alison, arising out of a broadcast by Colonel Britton on 16th January last, in which he attacked a private individual in France, who does not hold any public position in that country and who is related to Mr. Alison by marriage?

Mr. Bracken

The letter was passed by the Ministry of Information to the Political Warfare Executive who were responsible for this broadcast. But it would not be in the national interest to disclose their reasons for mentioning a particular name in this talk.
