HC Deb 11 June 1902 vol 109 c361

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether merchants who have been debarred from using their private telegraphic codes during the continuance of the war in South Africa, causing them extra expense, may, now that peace has been concluded, be permitted to resume those codes.

THE FINANCIAL SECRETARY TO THE WAR OFFICE (Lord Stanley,) Lancashire, Westhoughton

As I told the hon. Member on Monday last, in regard to the military censorship, I cannot make any statements on this subject at present. A communication to this effect was sent to the Press last night.
