HC Deb 28 September 1944 vol 403 c467W
Captain Bullock

asked the Minister of Information if he is aware that it is impossible to buy copies of the Paris newspapers in this country; and what steps are being taken to allow a supply of newspapers published in Paris to be purchased by the public in this country, in view of the importance of people interested in Anglo-French relations being able to read the articles now being published in the Paris daily papers.

Mr. Thurtle

I understand that there is so far no commercial transport available from France to this country and, even if transport were available, the newsprint position in Paris is so precarious that it would not permit a sufficient supply of newspapers to be sent here for sale to the general public.
