§ MR. O. V. MORGAN
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that, on the occasion of the presentation of prizes at the Royal Patriotic Schools, Wandsworth Common, on Tuesday, newspaper reporters were refused admittance; and what objection there is to such a matter of public interest being reported in the newspapers?
§ *MR. E. STANHOPE
There was no desire to exclude the Press, but admission was by ticket, and probably the repre- 1468 sentatives of the Press who were refused admission had omitted to ask for them. In future all reporters who wish to attend will be provided on application with the necessary orders for admission.
