§ MR. S. WOODS
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, as representing the Postmaster General, if he is aware that there was registered at Somerset House on 17th January, 1898, a newspaper called the Nottingham City News; whether it was registered in the name of a person who is not the proprietor; and whether this is a breach of the Newspaper Libel and Registration Act, 1881, Section 12; and, if so, what course he proposes to take in the matter?
§ THE PRESIDENT OF THE BOARD OF TRADE
It is by no means clear from the facts in the possession of the Department that there is a breach of the Act referred to. It is, however, open to any person aggrieved to take proceedings under the Statute if he is advised that there is a good case. The Board of Trade do not prosecute.
