Yes, Sir. My Department has already received much help from the Press and the B.B.C., for which I am most grateful. I am asking the responsible local authorities to make more extensive use of the services of the Central Council for Health Education, which include pamphlets, films, and lectures, and to advertise local facilities for treatment by the wider exhibition of posters and otherwise. The campaign will be developed as circumstances permit. Its development and success depend, however, largely on the extent to which the Press and other leaders of public opinion, including hon. Members of this House, give it active and continued support.
Is it not a little late for the Government to resort to this drastic remedy? Would it not have been better if they had faced fundamentals at the beginning of the war instead of waiting?
