asked the Home Secretary whether he has now completed the promised inquiry into the disclosures about armament factories, &c., in the newspaper article sent to him by the hon. Member for Maryhill on 20th April, 1943; and has he any statement to make?
Yes, Sir. I have considered my hon. Friend's representations, but as I find that the statement to which he refers was officially authorised it is outside the scope of Defence Regulation 3, which contains an express exception for anything done under official authority.
