asked the Minister of Information whether it is his intention to broadcast to the peoples of Europe, and to convey by leaflet, the war aims as stated by Lord Halifax in his recent speech in America?

Mr. Cooper:

The widest publicity possible has already been given by the usual means to Lord Halifax's speech.

While I hope the Government will take every opportunity of delivering bombs every time they can on Berlin and other parts of Germany, may I ask, in view of the fact that the news programmes are often jammed, that the people of Germany are given the true facts of recent British victories as well as the declaration of war aims by our Ambassador in Washington?

Mr. Cooper:

I will do my best.
