HC Deb 14 June 1915 vol 72 c483
11. Sir J. D. REES

asked the Home Secretary whether he is aware that the reports or descriptions of "Eye-Witness" with the Indian troops are published in India after being duly censored, but are of equal interest in the United Kingdom with the reports or descriptions of "Eye-Witness" with the British troops; and whether he will arrange for simultaneous, if not earlier, publication of such reports or descriptions in the United Kingdom in the Press in general, and in newspapers such as the "Indiaman," which specially serve those whose interests centre in the Indian services?


These articles have been written primarily with a view to meeting the wishes of the Government of India. They could not have been published here before they appear in India. I know of no general desire for the publication of them in the Press in this country, but if the "Indiaman" should desire to publish them simultaneously with their publication in India that could, I think, be arranged.
