asked the Minister of Information whether he will consult with the First Lord of the Admiralty and the Secretaries of State for Air and War with a view to making arrangements whereby once or twice a day there shall be issued a brief comprehensive British war communiqué embodying the official news from all fronts, land, sea and air, thereby ensuring equal publicity for all three services?
Will my right hon. Friend regard it as a matter of urgency in order to put a stop as soon as possible to the unregulated competition of publicity which has been going on between the Service Departments, a competition in which the Admiralty and the War Office have so often been left badly in the rear?
I will certainly start these conversations as soon as possible, and I shall be helped, I suppose, in conducting them by the statement just made by my hon. and gallant Friend.
