asked the Minister of Information why he has given instructions that advertisements for dispensers and other employés required by the Leeds Hospital are to be inserted under a box number, having regard to the fact that the location of the hospital is plainly stated in the advertisement?

Mr. Cooper:

No instructions of the kind referred to in the Question have been issued. The Press have in fact been requested not to publish information as to the location of military hospitals, and the refusal to accept the Leeds Hospital advertisement except under a box number appears to have arisen through a misinterpretation of this request.
