HC Deb 27 January 1943 vol 386 cc518-9W
Mr. Pritt

asked the Minister of Information whether the services of Mr. Alfred Curthoys in his Ministry were satisfactory; and why he released him from his public duties in order to manage a publicity campaign on behalf of private interests against the Beveridge scheme?

Mr. Thurtle

The answer to the first part of the Question is "Yes, Sir." Mr. Curthoys resigned his post at the Ministry in order to take up employment in a private business.
