§ 97. Mr. TREVELYAN
asked the Home Secretary whether he can publish, for the information of the House, the rules or series of prohibitions, mentioned in his letter of 11th October, which have been framed for the guidance of the Press Bureau by the War Office, Admiralty, and other Government Departments?
§ 98. Mr. TREVELYAN
asked the Home Secretary whether the Censor suppressed, or attempted to suppress, a letter of Sir Frederick Milner dealing with cases of injustice to ex-soldiers discharged as in capacitated from the Army; and what object was served by this suppression?
§ Mr. BRACE
The letter referred to contained statements which appeared likely to prejudice recruiting, and as such would be forbidden by Regulation 27, under the Defence of the Realm Act. This has been explained to Sir Frederick Milner. If the complaints in Sir Frederick Milner's letter were well founded, they were matter for appeal to the War Office, which has power to remedy the grievances.
