Gentleman aware that there does exist serious rivalry between the Service Departments because the publicity given to each of the Services depends on the ability of these feature writers—or journalists, if they are not to be called feature writers—rather than upon the courage of the men about whom they are writing, with the result that there is a serious disturbance in morale between the Services? Will the right hon. Gentleman really look into the matter, because it is very serious?
