"Nor did I ask the question without informing the govern- ment beforehand of my inten- tions, but .you can take it from me that the facts I adduced are correct." Attlee Charges Misrepresentation Atllee, in his Brighton speech, sharplv accused "communists, their dupes and fellow travelers" of practicing "misrepresentation" and said he.
