§ Mr. Mander
asked the Home Secretary whether he is aware that the so-called Anglo-German organisation known as The Link is in fact an instrument of the German propaganda service financed by Germany; and whether he will take action to put an end to its activities?
§ Sir S. Hoare
The professed object of this organisation is to promote understanding between England and Germany, but it does nothing to enable Germans to understand the English view, and devotes itself to expressing the German point of view. The information I have shows that the organisation is being used as an instrument of the German propaganda service and that money has been received from Germany by one of the active organisers. As regards the last part of the question, I have no power to intervene unless an organisation breaks the law.
