asked the Minister of Information whether he will arrange for the dropping over France of leaflets containing information as to the real facts concerning the French fleet, such leaflets to be written by the eminent French editors and others who are refugees in this country and whose names will carry conviction to millions of the French people?

Mr. Cooper:

Leaflets containing information both in regard to the Armistice terms and in regard to the French fleet have already been dropped over France. It is proposed to continue and extend the dropping of leaflets over France with a view to keeping the French people informed of the real facts of the situation. The possibility of securing the services of prominent Frenchmen for this purpose is under consideration.
