asked the Minister of Information if he is aware that the British achievement of Port Mulberry is quite unknown in the U.S.A.; and what steps he is taking to make more widely known this great contribution to the success of the invasion of the Continent.

My information is that widespread publicity was given in the Amercian Press, newsreels and radio to the Mulberry Harbour as a British achievement. An exhibition prepared by us and sponsored by the U.S. Treasury is at present touring the principal cities of the United States. An illustrated booklet entitled "Miracle Harbour" is being distributed in connection with the exhibition; and the M.O.I, film "A Harbour Goes to France" has been released for showing in cinemas throughout the United States.
