§ 27. Mr. Stokes
asked the Minister of Information what instructions were sent by or through his Department to the Press 647 in this country and to the war correspondents in North Africa suggesting that the performance of the A 22 tanks in the recent operations had been satisfactory?
§ Mr. Stokes
Is it pure coincidence that immediately following the Army Debate there was an absolute spate of reference to this matter all over the Press?
§ Mr. Bracken
That was entirely due to the brilliant speech made by my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for War.
§ Mr. Granville
Is it not a fact that the right hon. Gentleman on these matters has as much power as Dr. Goebbels has in Germany?
