asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he is aware that a publication entitled "The New Central European Observer," published by the Czechoslovakian Government, is being distributed to schools in this country from London; and whether he will withdraw the diplomatic privilege at present enjoyed by the distributors of this publication.

"The New Central European Observer" is ostensibly a British publication under the editorship of two British subjects and it cannot, therefore, be said that it is published by the Czechoslovak Government. I am looking into the circumstances in which its editorial offices are situated at an address which also houses the offices of the Czechoslovak Commercial Counsellor. I have no official knowledge of the distribution of the publication in the manner referred to by the hon. Member.
