No Debate on Nazi Camp White Parer, Chamberlain Tells Commons

Download PDF for this date

The White Paper on atrocities in Nazi concentration camps is being given the greatest possible publicity at home and abroad but will not be debated in Parliament, Prime Minister Chamberlain advised the House of Commons today.

“As was indicated in the introduction,” he said in reply to queries by P.J. Noel-Baker, Labor, M.P. and Commander Oliver Locker-Lampson, conservative, “the documents in the White Paper were published to enable public opinion here and abroad to form its own judgment. The facts disclosed speak for themselves (general cheers), and I do not consider that a useful purpose would be served by a debate.”
