HC Deb 13 June 1945 vol 411 cc1677-8W
Squadron-Leader Fleming

asked the Attorney-General whether he is aware that a letter, signed John England, has been sent by the directors of the Manchester and Salford Co-operative Society to Servicemen inviting them to vote for Socialist candidates at the forthcoming General Election and enclosing a gift of 5s. from the Co-operative War Comforts Fund; and if he will take steps to bring such gifts within the Corrupt Practices Act.

The Attorney-General

My attention has been drawn to this matter by the Director of Public Prosecutions, and inquiries into it are still proceeding.
