asked the Prime Minister whether his attention has been called to an article in a leading French journal stating with great prominence that a certain journal which is published in Paris is a propaganda paper controlled by himself; that it gives expression only to his policy and views; that, although nominally priced at 50 centimes, it is circulated free, and was so circulated at the Genoa Conference; and has he any statement to make on this matter?

I have not seen the article referred to in the question. Any statement to the effect that I control a journey of any sort in France, or that a journal controlled by me and expressing my views was circulated free at the Genoa Conference, is pure invention.
