The Prime Minister has given the House of Commons and

the country full information on developments in the Mediter- ranean, and no information on the descent of Herr Hess. This meets with the general approval of the House of Commons. Confidence in the Prime Minister is overwhelming ; it is there- fore important that the War Cabinet should pay the closest attention to informed criticism on production, food distribution, civil defence and war propaganda. If they will do this now and satisfy the country that a total effort can be made this summer, the House of Commons will have performed its legitimate task.
