HC Deb 04 November 1943 vol 393 cc880-1W
Mr. De la Bère

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will take steps, together with the Minister of Information and other appropriate Ministries, to co-ordinate the work being done by the numerous paid publicity agents attached to the various Government Departments, for the purpose of eliminating unnecessary overlapping and in order to secure a further reduction in the numbers employed?

Sir J. Anderson

I share my hon. Friend's view as to the importance of co-ordination and economy in the organisation of Public Relations Branches. As has been explained in previous answers, these arrangements have been frequently reviewed and a further review is at present in progress.
