asked the Minister of Information whether his attention has been called to enemy-inspired propaganda circulating in this country to the effect that, after defeating the Germans, war between Great Britain and Russia will arise; and whether he will warn the public of the unwisdom of helping Goebbel's plot by repetition?

The issuance of warnings against German propaganda to the British public would be a waste of breath. I prefer to rely upon the commonsense of our people, which is one of the foundations of our war effort.
