§ The SECRETARY of STATE for the HOME DEPARTMENT (Mr. McKenna)
I am informed that the news in question is sent from Germany to wireless stations in all parts of the world. Any attempt, therefore, to prevent its publication in London, with a view to its not reaching other countries, would be useless. As regards recabling this news as originally emanating from London, I understand that if such messages are presented for re-transmission, either by wireless or by cable, they are stopped, but that, in fact, few attempts have been made to re-transmit them.
§ Mr. McKENNA
In regard to news falsely sent from abroad as coming from 556 this country the hon. Member will see that it is impossible to prevent news which originates from abroad.
