asked the Minister of Information whether he is aware that the British Broadcasting Corporation, on Shakespeare's birthday, St. George's Day, in its overseas service for Germans, put on a programme of Shakespeare's lyrics set to jazz and sung by a crooner; and whether he is satisfied that this kind of broadcast assists our propaganda efforts?
