HC Deb 19 July 1915 vol 73 c1181

asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office the amount of public money paid to the "Freeman's Journal," Dublin, or in trust for it, for its services in connection with the War since the outbreak of hostilities; and whether all its services have been paid for collectively, or a special sum has been earmarked for the weekly recruiting publication, purporting to be a newspaper, which it prints?


I am not aware of any payments made to this newspaper, or in trust for it, other than the ordinary payments for advertisements. These to the 31st May amounted to about £60 to the "Freeman's Journal" and £5 to the "Weekly Freeman."
