asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether his attention has been drawn to an article entitled?Justice or Revenge,? written by a former British Fascist and published in the?Hamburger Allgemeine Zeitung? of 21st January, 1949, condemning the trial of war criminals and offering an apologia for Nazi atrocities that they were no worse than alleged atrocities by English settlers against American Indians in 1637–38 and by Americans against Indians in 1813; and whether he will take steps to discourage such anti-British propaganda in a newspaper licensed by the Control Commission.

Yes, Sir. My attention has been drawn to this article and the British Element of the Control Commission have taken steps to stop the circulation of others like it.
