asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether he is aware that, although the sale of newspapers is prohibited in Devonport dockyard, the distribution of newspapers is allowed before the time of commencement of work; and whether he will have the embargo on the distribution of "Labour Leaders" removed.
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the ADMIRALTY (Dr. Macnamara)
It is the fact that no newspapers are sold in the dockyard, i.e., newsvendors are not allowed in the yard for the purpose of selling newspapers or other literature. What is allowed, is the delivery to ships, offices, and residences, of newspapers which have been previously ordered. No discrimination whatever is made as to the newspapers so delivered.
