asked the Minister of Information if he is aware that on 27th March the B.B.C., on the Scottish News, made an announcement about what was described as a new discovery by the I.C.I. for killing weeds in grain; and why the product of this combination was given this gratuitous advertisement.
§ Mr. Thurtle
The Ministry of Information is not responsible for the content of B.B.C. Home News Bulletins. But on inquiring of the B.B.C. I find that the hon. and gallant Member has been misinformed. The news item to which he refers made no mention of the I.C.I.
