HC Deb 27 March 1911 vol 23 cc901-2
Viscount WOLMER

asked whether, among the statements marked confidential information, not for publication, recently issued by the Board of Trade to traders, were included an extract from "The Natal Agricultural Journal," a paragraph from the Paris Directory, a statement in "The Novoe Vremya," and an item from the "Brazilian Diario Official," and, if so, what was the reason for insisting that these statements should be regarded as confidential?


Such of the circulars apparently alluded to in the question which were marked "Confidential" were so marked because some of the information (though not necessarily all) was of a confidential character or consequential on earlier communications giving information of this character.
