§ 45. Mr. A. Lewis
asked the Prime Minister if he will consider making periodical broadcasts to the people of the country, on national problems, similar to those made by the Prime Minister of the Coalition Government.
§ The Prime Minister (Mr. Attlee)
I should propose on suitable occasions to make broadcasts on national problems.
Will the right hon. Gentleman give due weight to this statement, in view of the fact that in his broadcast he likened the condition of this country after over six months of Socialist Government to that in which it was at the time of Dunkirk?
§ Mr. Godfrey Nicholson
As it is impossible to separate entirely the personality of the Prime Minister from his personality as a political leader, will he see that the Opposition leaders have equal opportunities?
§ The Prime Minister
The general rule is that where there is any matter of political controversy there should be opportunity given to the other side.
