asked the Minister of Information whether, in view of the fact that there is a supply of qualified British subjects available for propaganda, intelligence and broadcasting to the Near and Middle East, he will choose trained intelligence officers, with knowledge of the language and of the country concerned, in preference to persons with academic mind and outlook?

If my hon. Friend will supply me with the names of any qualified persons who he thinks might usefully be employed or re-employed in this field, I will certainly consider them.
