§ MR. JOHN ELLIS (Nottinghamshire, Rushcliffe)
To ask the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he will state how the censorship which was established owing to the war in South Africa now stands in respect of letters and other documents passing in the mail bags to British South Africa, or from the same; letters and other documents 921 passing in the mail bags within South Africa itself; telegrams passing over the cables to and from South Africa, or within South Africa itself;-newspapers or other publications appearing or circulating in South Africa; and when such censorship as exists may be expected to cease.
(Answer.) Censorship of private letters, telegrams, and cablegrams to and from South Africa has been removed. Press telegrams and journals published in South Africa remain subject to censorship for the present.—(War Office.)
