HC Deb 01 August 1951 vol 491 c193W
Sir R. Glyn

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he will make a statement as to what decision has been taken to counteract the hostile propaganda of the publication known as the "Soviet Weekly," especially in Nigeria and West Africa.

Mr. J. Griffiths

A continuous flow of information material in various forms, including periodicals, literature, information for the Press and film and radio material is kept up to ensure. that accurate information on the western way of life and on current world events is available in West Africa as elsewhere. In addition to Governmental action, an increasing supply of literature on these subjects enters West Africa through normal commercial channels. The publication "Soviet Weekly" has a limited circulation in West Africa, and should be considered against this background. I am confident that the Governments concerned are fully alive, to the situation.
