HC Deb 25 July 1962 vol 663 cc142-3W
38. Mr. Awbery

asked the Secretary of State for War on what basis a selection of newspapers is made for supply to Maltese gunners serving with the British Army of the Rhine at Dortmund; and if he will include The Voice of Malta and 11 Helsien amongst these newspapers.

Mr. Profumo

This unit orders from its own funds a small number of English language and Maltese newspapers. The selection is not a matter for me.
