HC Deb 05 April 1955 vol 539 cc84-5W
Mr. Parkin

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether, in view of the importance of avoiding hatred and the difficulty of avoiding horror in illustrations used during Civil Defence training, he will seek the right to reproduce in official training manuals paintings by two artists of whom he has been informed.

Major Lloyd-George

I do not agree that the circulation of such reproductions as I have seen of the paintings by these artists which have been exhibited in London would have the effect suggested by the hon. Member, and they would in any case be entirely unsuitable for inclusion in training manuals.
