In July 1935, before the General Election, there was a very strong movement in this House in favour of the appointment of a Minister to concert the action of the three fighting Services. Moreover, at that time the Departments of State were all engaged in drawing up the large schemes of rearmament in all branches which have been laid before us in the White Paper and upon which we are now engaged. One would have thought that that was the time when this new Minister or Co-ordinator was most necessary. He was not, however, in fact appointed until nearly nine months later, in March 1936. No explanation has yet been given to us why these nine months were wasted before the taking of what is now an admittedly necessary measure. The Prime Minister dilated the other night, no doubt very properly, the great advantages which had flowed from the appointment of the Minister for the Co-ordination of Defence. Every argument used to show how useful has been the work which he has done accuses the failure to appoint him nine months earlier, when inestimable benefits would have accrued to us by the saving of this long period.
Helena Mirsch berättar att nyhetsbyråns effektiva rubriker och korta artiklar gör att de snabbt kan ta beslut om det är någon nyhet de vill arbeta vidare med. Det Helena framförallt lyfter fram är att redaktionen med Sirens hjälp kan fokusera på att skriva fler artiklar, i stället för att kontakta myndigheter för att få tag i material.
– Det är jättebra för oss som liten redaktion. Det skulle vara otroligt tidsödande om vi skulle behöva begära ut handlingar själva, ett jobb vi dagligen inte skulle mäkta med, säger Helena Mirsch, och fortsätter:
– Vi vet att många av de artiklar vi publicerar, där vi fått grundmaterialet från Siren, blir lästa. Framförallt utredda fall av lex Maria och lex Sarah-anmälningar.
