asked the Minister of Information whether it is the policy of his Department to authorise Ministry of Information speakers to give talks at public meetings on the Beveridge Scheme for Social Security?

I must refer the hon. Member to the answer given on 24th March in reply to the hon. Member for East Wolverhampton (Mr. Mander).

Can the right hon. Gentleman say whether it is the practice of his Department to authorise the official speakers of the Ministry of Information to give talks on the Beveridge Report?

I gave a most comprehensive answer to the hon. Member for East Wolverhampton, and it would really be tautological for me to add to it.

That answer applied to some weeks ago. I am asking whether his Department is authorising talks on the Beveridge Report now.

The hon. Member is asking that Question, and I cannot add anything to the answer I gave to the hon. Member for East Wolverhampton.
