HC Deb 30 January 1957 vol 563 c182W
Mr. Gresham Cooke

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, in view of the decision of Her Majesty's Government to take steps to intensify collaboration with Western European countries in various fields, what steps it is proposed to take to improve the information services from Great Britain to the countries concerned in that area.

Mr. Ian Harvey

My right hon. Friend the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster with the assistance of the Departments concerned is examining the Oversea Information Services generally with a view to recommending ways in which they might be improved or in which the balance of effort might be adjusted between different areas of the world and different forms of activity. The services to Western Europe will be examined in the course of that review.
