§ MR. CHARLES M'ARTHUR (Liverpool Exchange)
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, as representing the Postmaster General, whether it is now possible to give instructions for an immediate resumption of cypher messages between English commercial houses and their correspondents at Cape Town.
MR. J. POWELL-WILLIAMS
Perhaps the hon. Member will allow me to answer this. The reply is— No, Sir, I am afraid that it is not possible at present to relax the regulations with regard to code and cypher telegrams.
