Questions to Ministers

Oral Answers to Questions — Coal Industry – in the House of Commons on 25th April 1944.

Alert me about debates like this

The following Question stood upon the Order Paper in the name of Sir AUSTIN HUDSON: To ask the Minister of Information if he will take steps to see that London newspapers and the B.B.C. do not announce after an air-raid that a hospital has been hit, as this results in every hospital in London being rung up on the telephone by friends and relatives of the patients in order to find out whether it is the one in question.

In view of the fact that we are shortly to suspend the Sitting, would it be possible to take Question No. 74 as the Minister is here, and I believe the information in reply to it may be of importance?

The answer no doubt will be circulated in due course, and I am not prepared to alter the rule.
